The NY Islanders are planning to build a practice facility in Hicksville, probably in an attempt to placate all the fans they snubbed by leaving town.
It seems like someone wasn’t thinking ahead when they, um, took my suggestion.
The 2015 Press Club of Long Island Media Awards were held the night of June 4th. In the glittering company of Long Island media’s best and brightest, I snuck away with a few awards. I can only imagine no one was paying attention.
A bit of trivia, the second place deer cartoon also took third place in this year’s New York Press Association Better Newspaper contest, making it my first cartoon to win two awards.
Second Place, from the Glen Cove Record Pilot:
My editorial cartoons with Anton Media placed second and third in the 2014 New York Press Association “Better Newspaper Contest”.
Second Place, from the Levittown Tribune:
The judges said, “Mr. Bodkin created a cartoon with a great attention to detail and a good comment on the over assertiveness of the national television media”.
Third Place, from the Syosset-Jericho Tribune
The judges said, “Well drawn” and “Well done”.
The Press Club of Long Island announced it’s 2014 Media Award winners.
I won all three places in the “Visual Media: Cartoons” category.
First Place, “Manufacturing”, from the Long Island Business News.
Second Place, “Liquid Natural Gas Fireball”, from the Massapequa Observer.
Third Place, “Common Core”, From Newsday.
