*I don't include this here with the thought of being boastful. It was an absolute shock (and honour!) to have won this Award on the night and join others who have won this Award in the past.... And that includes James Kemsley (1985), Gary Clark (1997), Gerard Piper (2000), as well as some of last night's winners: Tony Lopes in 2001 and David Follett in 2005. Maybe I should be grateful Neil Matterson wasn't able to attend....! Neil has won Best Cartoon on the Night four times in the past: 1988, 1990, 1999 and 2009 - at least once every decade!
Anyway, just so you don't think I am blowing my own tune, my next Blog posting will be detailing the events of the Conference that was held during the days of Friday and Saturday; and especially those that I think are of pertinence to Comicoz...
