National Cartoonist Society President Tom Richmond has posted the cover art for this upcoming year’s NCS Reuben Awards weekend with caricatures of the line-up of speakers and special award winners. Family Circus cartoonist and former NCS President Jeff Keane will be the recipient of this year’s NCS ?Silver T-Square? for outstanding dedication to the organization.
