I just received some very fantastic and flattering news! I won the 2011 Glyph Award for my work on BB Wolf And The Three LPs. I won for "Best Artist" and we were also nominated in three other categories...Best Writer; Best Story; and Best Lead Character.
The Glyph Awards recognizes achievement in graphic novels/comics that represent American Black History and culture. It was a phenomenal honor to be nominated in four categories for our efforts on BB Wolf. When JD and I were working together on this we were cognizant of the parallels our story made with Black History and felt we were creating an important piece of work but to be recognized by the Glyphs like we were was beyond flattering.
Since I wasn't in Philadelphia for the ceremony I'll give my brief acceptance speech right here...
"This was a team effort and so I have to give thanks to the following people... JD Arnold, Troy Geddes, Chris Staros and Brett Warnock of Top Shelf, Rob Venditti and Leigh Walton, CJ Bettin, Katie Arnold, and Sandy and Stella. Also all of the musicians who helped create the awesome BB Wolf & The Howlers soundtrack! The entire project was a massive amount of work but to be recognized like this for it makes it all the more worthwhile."
And thanks to all of you who have purchased the book and/or cds and those reviewers who have been so kind to us this past year!
