I won 1st Place for Best Editorial Cartoon last night at the 54th Annual Southern California Journalism Awards. The star-crammed and Martin-Sheened evening at downtown L.A.’s historic Biltmore Hotel was capped with a tribute to Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein (Carl and Lalo in second pic). I snapped a few photos, and have also included the main winning cartoon that I entered. It is my second straight year winning, and my 6th overall Press Club award. During the event, I hung out briefly at the LA Times table, who generously invited me to attend, but mostly I chilled at the KCET table, who generously bought me a whisky.
Woodward and Bernstein spoke, (Woodward through Skype) and they detailed how corrupt the disgraced President Nixon really was.
