Buc Bulletin Series: Parts 1 & 2

Originally printed in the Oswego High School's Buccaneer Bulletin School  Newspaper, 1989.

I used to just draw comics that would humor me and my classmates and annoy my teachers and faculty (because not only was I doing them IN school, but occasionally a classmate or teacher wound up being butthurt).

However, when a few teachers pointed me towards doing cartoons FOR SCHOOL and the beloved school newspaper instead of just for personal amusement and practice for my desired career as a cartoonist / comic book artist / graphic novelist, I started winning awards.

This series of cartoons won awards for:

  • 1st Place for the Empire State School Press Association (1st Place Best Cartoon of the Academic Year 1989-90)
  • 1st Place for the Syracuse Newspapers High School Press Day (1st Place, Cartoons 1990)
    • 1st Place for the Syracuse Newspapers Editorial Writing/Cartoon Contest (1st Place, Political Cartoon 1990)
      • 1st Place for the Syracuse Newspapers High School Press Day (2nd Place, Cartoons 1991)
        • 1st Place for the Syracuse Newspapers High School Press Day (1st Place, Cartoons 1992)
