I do hope you mean “inducted”, not “indicted”.

Sanford Kossin was one of my illustrator heroes as a kid, as was Ted Kokonis. I’m glad that these fine illustrators are getting the recognition that they deserve.

I didn’t know comic strip artists were being inducted into the Society. Illustration is kind of a different field than stripping.

What a great honor for two amazing cartoonists to be acknowledged for their illustrations as well!

Even though cartooning is presented, correctly, as a very different skill set than general illustration, I’m pretty sure cartooning is categorized as a form of illustration… There are SO many subsets and so many markets…
