Independent's Dave Brown Wins Best Political Cartoon Award


I think the thing I like most about this news brief saying Dave Brown of the Independent won the Political Cartoon Of The Year Award from the Political Cartoon Society is that the society met on a Tuesday and voted for a cartoon that was apparently about three days old. I wish all awards were like this. Well, I wish more of them were, anyway. I also like the fact that there's a classical art allusion, which is not the kind of thing that drives North American political cartoons, award-winning or otherwise.

Here's a gallery of Brown's work. He's won that particular award three times, although there's no word if the award went to other cartoons he just did.
