Dave & Loose Parts Win Reuben Award For 3rd Time!

(SEPT. 2023) Wow! Loose Parts has been awarded the National Cartoonists Society's coveted Reuben Award for Best Newspaper Panel. The award was given in early September in  New York. This is the third time Loose Parts has won one of the most prestigious awards in the profession. The Reubens – often referred to as the 'Oscars' of cartooning – are voted on by hundreds of the best professional cartoonists, illustrators and animators working today.  "It's both humbling and enthralling to be recognized by the cartooning world. And it's challenging in that I had to put on pants to go get the award," said Blazek. "Y'know, you spend all year just lobbing these ideas over the horizon, never being quite sure if you're hitting anything. It's good to know people actually enjoy catching them."

     "I'm not sure words, or pictures, can adequately express how simultaneously gratifying and humbling this award is," said Blazek. "As someone who only began cartooning in middle age, I'm in awe by the giants and other pros who wander around the NCS. To be recognized by them leaves me flabbergasted. Really, I had my doctor check. My flabbergast levels are off the charts."
