*1981 Tribune Media Campus Cartoonist of the Year, 1st place. This award was for writing and illustration during my collegiate years.

1982 - 1983, Assistant to Pultizer-prize winning editorial cartoonist Jeff MacNelly on his "Shoe" comic strip, , as both writer and illustrator. (Jeff, who died around 1999, was a generous fellow who didn't help, but was helping another young Virginia -based cartoonist up the artistic ladder.)
