This year has brought about a lot of big changes. For the first time, the National Cartoonists Society’s Reuben Awards and NCSFest was online and available to the public (for free)!
This full-day event kicked off at 10AM EDT on Saturday, September 12, 2020 and included an exciting array of panel discussions, award announcements, and creator spotlights — including an event titled “25 Years of MUTTS.”
Patrick joined host and For Better Or For Worse creator Lynn Johnston in discussing Patrick’s journey over the past two and a half decades since MUTTS began. Lynn and Patrick talked about early influences such as their friend, the late Charles Schulz, the fantastic Lynda Barry, and the process of working with Abrams Comic Arts editor Charlie Kochman on Patrick’s newest book The Art of Nothing (which is really something).
Patrick was also the winner of this year’s Elzie Segar Award, in honor and recognition of his unique and outstanding contribution to the profession of cartooning.
