Renee Faundo Wins This Year's Jay Kennedy Scholarship
The National Cartoonist Society Foundation named Renee Faundo the winner of the 2014 Jay Kennedy Memorial Scholarship in an announcement last week. Faundo is attending the California Institute Of The Arts with a major in Character Animation, and has received a number of honors in that field of cartoon-making as describe in the release through that initial link. She gets a $5K scholarship and a trip to the Reubens weekend in San Diego in late May. Faundo was chosen from a pool that was about 60 applicants.
You can find a lot of Faundo's art at a formal blog here.
Jay Kennedy was the longtime editor at King Features Syndicate; he passed away in 2007 after an accident suffered while on vacation.
