Missed It: Von Allan Wins Corel Endowment For The Arts Award

imageSequential has a short piece up on the cartoonist Von Allan winning one of this year's Corel Endowment Of The Arts Awards. That money will fund Allan's latest effort Metal Gods, which has a site here. That's an award to Ottawa-based artists via a partnership between the local arts council and Corel. Allan received $1000, making him one of 41 artists to benefit from the program over the last 16 years.

There's video of Allan accepting the honor through that first link.

I don't know Allan beyond a few on-line encounters, but he strikes me as a very passionate, very invested cartoonist, the kind one wants to see winning the support of arts groups and grant programs. Here's a recent interview.
