Daily Cartoonist: IU’s Ben Wade Wins John Locher Memorial Award
Alan Gardner over at Daily Cartoonist picked up word that Indiana University illustrator/cartoonist Ben Wade will receive this year's AAEC/John Locher Memorial Award. That's an award that's been around for about a quarter-century that goes to college editorial cartoonists. The winner receives $1000 and a trip to the year's AAEC convention (this time out in Washington, D.C.). I'm not familiar with Wade's editorial cartooning work, although samples of his illustrations in Bloomington student-focused publication show up here and there on the Internet. There's also a profile of Wade as a kind of "typical freshman" feature here.
