Speaking of being happy, I’m tickled pink (with red spots) to say that three of my friends and favorite creators won top honors at the Toonie Awards Banquet held by Cartoonists Northwest on May 1.

Kevin Boze and Stasia Kato jointly won a Golden Toonie for their book The Virgin Project. And my pal Mark Monlux also won a Golden Toonie for his web comics, The Comic Critic & The Return of Stickman.
