  1. I can’t think of a more deserving person than my buddy Dwane. Congrats!

  2. Dwane ole pal.
    This is well deserved. You have the best, sharpest and most creative wit of all the cartoonists I’ve ever known.
    Your work has been consistently outstanding. I think we got on the right track years ago with our bar napkin caricature battles. You always won.
