First Place

I found out over the weekend that I, along with art director Pete Morelewicz and writer John Metcalfe, took home First Prize at the Alt Weekly Awards (in the labyrinthine category of "Format Buster (circuation >60,000)") for the "Black Guide to Georgetown" spread that ran in the Washington City Paper last year! Some images can be seen here, and you can still read the original article on the City Paper's website. And trust me, them images is far more impressive in print than on screen!

Nods go out to my pal Josh Latta, who was nominated in the same category for his awesome comic from the ATL's Creative Loafing about Ralph Reed, and to the ever-lovin' J. Chris Campbell, who helped me make the illustrations look just right!

Congratulations Rob! The award was well deserved!

I also think you should get an award for the hockey girls but I'm not sure that's a category :)
