Good for local cartoonists, bad for Michele!
Magazine - Story, Design and Photography: Best commissioned illustration -- LESS than 50K
The 2008 Republican National Convention: A Graphic Novelette
Ken Avidor/Steve Kaplan - Minnesota Law & Politics
More "graphic" than "novelette," Avidor and Kaplan do a nice job summing up the RNC in a format that gives the reader the gist of the event far more efficiently than paragraphs of prose would do. Well done.
Newspaper - Editorial and Opinion: Editorial page cartoon -- 50K+
Xcape from Xcel
Kevin Cannon - City Pages
This is not a "get it at a glance" editorial cartoon. The detail and thought that went into it took some time to appreciate. The political faces are well done. Just the idea of politics as a game gives this another level of meaning. We identify with "electrocuted while punching a TV"!
