Congrats, Bosch! A well deserved accolade.

Thank you, it's an honor

Well done!
I notice quite a bit of detail in this one (the hairs on the hands etc). Reminded me of the inking of Terry Austin.

Bosch Fawstin said...

I loved Terry Austin's inks as a kid, he was my favorite, but then I became aware of Dan Green and others, but I could see your point, though I use a brush to ink and Austin used a dip pen. I remember how Austin instantly improved every penciler he inked.

Hate to break it to you dude. they haven't announced a winner yet.

"The winning cartoon will be announced at the May 3 cartoon exhibit in Garland....If the winner our judges have selected is different from the winner by the people, the People’s Choice winner will receive $2,500."

"Hate to break it to *you*," dude", but they announced my piece as The People's Choice Award Winner on the official AFDI Facebook page, (see link) with the grand prize to be announced on May 3rd.

Congratulations on getting credit where it's due!

I love this one. Would it be ok with you if I were to share this picture on social media?

Bosch Fawstin said...

Thanks, and a good number of people have already shared it in social media.

Why am I not surprised! Well done Bosch!

Bosch Fawstin said...

Thanks, Yocheved :)

I loved Terry Austin over Marshall Rogers (who is sadly, no longer with us) - the Laughing Fish issues of Detective Comics etc. Strangely, when they got together again in 2007 to do the sequel, 'Batman: Dark Detective', something had changed. I remember the artwork not quite being the same. Perhaps one or both had gotten older - I'm not sure.

Bosch Fawstin said...

Yeah, those early ones were great, and I do remember their reunion, and Austin's inks at that time were more choppy and less bold,

I.M Fletcher said...

I know it's not related here, but, I wondered if you'd seen any of the new Daredevil series on Netflix? I've watched the whole series, and I must say that I was generally impressed.

Bosch Fawstin said...

I thought they did a great job and I can't wait to see what they do for season two.

Ash Rosetti said...

Congratulations! I love this drawing! I'm glad that everyone is safe after last night's shooting.

Congratulations from a descendant of Albanians who fled Turkish Muslim rule. Like you, I will fight, not flee.

Crusader said...

Congrats Bosch! Years ago you dropped off an autographed copy at my Corona home! Wish I was home at the time so I could have thanked you personally!

Thank you

Frank Jones said...

Excellent. Your are very talented. Thank you for standing up! You are doing important work.

Uncle Sporkums said...

WOW!! I didn't even know that was YOU, Mister Fawstein! Figures! Congrats!

I remember you from Breitbart years ago! Good to know you're still fighting the good fight!

When can we buy it on a t-shirt?

Congratulations! I just heard you've been added to the SPLC Hate List!

You've got to love that the SPLC apparently thinks it's justifiable to add someone to a 'hate list' two days after someone attempted to murder him for daring to draw the incredibly reasonable picture above.

At this point I'm hoping I get added to an SPLC Hate List some day - it seems like I'd be in good company.

I could just give a shout out on a job well done.
It would not make me look like the weak kneed grovelling chicken sheet wussy I really am because I too weak to voice my conviction.
A $25 donation is the least I can offer to purchase myself some dignity.
Your safety is now connected to MY families survival. Bless you.
