Gary Varvel (potentially a GLC member if he joins NCS - Indianapolis is that us?) felt so bad for Rich for not even getting into the top 3 Book Illustration nominees (and even worse a cartoon book about butts won) offers him his Reuben for Editorial Cartoonist of the Year.
Okay, he wouldn't even let me hold it!
