News of the Doug Wright Awards nominees hit the Internet about 20 minutes before it was learned the cultural icon Prince died. I always feel a little bad when a story gets buried by a bigger story due to timing, so I hope you'll take a peek at that post.
I think the DWAs are one of our awards program that works. This is an interesting year for the surge of D+Q work in the "Best Book" category. There's also work and artists on that list to discover aside from their award-finalist status. I'm posting a couple of "go, looks" from cartoonists on that list with whom I'm barely familiar.
One would hope that our popular culture not take another hit on TCAF weekend when the Doug Wrights are announced, or really, not take another hit for several months. But the way 2016 has gone, I wouldn't bet on it.
