Steadman to Receive 2006 Caniff Award


Ralph Steadman has been announced the winner of the Milton Caniff Award for Lifetime Achievement, given in conjunction with the Reuben Awards. The esteemed British illustrator will be honored at what has to be the only cartoonist gathering to require formal wear, the Reuben Awards Banquet held in conjunction with the National Cartoonists Society yearly meeting, scheduled for Chicago in late May.

In addition to the news about Steadman the Reubens have announced their 2006 slate of award nominees, both for the big award (cartoonist of the year aka "the Reuben") and the various division awards (best at specific aspect for the year, aka "a Reuben"). Nominees for the major award are Bill Amend (Fox Trot), Dave Coverly (Speed Bump), Brian Crane (Pickles), Mike Luckovich (editorial cartoonist, Atlanta Journal-Constitution) and Dan Piraro (Bizarro).

The nominations are additionally a good measure of the up and coming cartoonists held in high regard by their peers.
