"Xcape from Xcel" Wins Page One Award

According to the City Pages blotter, my contribution to last summer's City Pages Comix Issue will win an award at the upcoming Society of Professional Journalists Page One Awards. I had no idea this comic was even up for an award, so it's all the more surprising.

City Pages is really good to local cartoonists -- for the past two years they've published a Comix Issue, giving us a chance to get our art in wide circulation (50,000+ papers) and on the web. Each year has a theme; 2007 was "Tales from the Twin Cities" and 2008 was "When the Elephants Come to Town."

You can view the winning entry, Xcape from Xcel, here:
