Congratulations to Lifetime Achievement Award recipient R.O. Blechman

    |    

Noted cartoonist, animator, illustrator, author, and all-around sweetheart R.O. Blechman took home last week the 2011 Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award. Blechman has had a distinguished career spanning several mediums over the course of nearly six decades and I can think of few people more deserving of this honor. It would be a challenge to summarize his career in such a brief space, but the recently-published Talking Lines is an excellent starting point, providing an overview of all of his short comics work from Humbug in the 1950s to recent pieces from the New York Times right through 2009. One of my favorite Blechman books is also recent, a little gem that he wrote a couple of years ago, Dear James: Letters To A Young Illustrator — highly recommended!
