I had an absolutely incredible evening last night.
I accepted the Herblock Prize at a ceremony in the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.
After my acceptance speech, the Herblock Lecture was delivered by Representative John Lewis, who was nothing less than inspiring. It was a honor to share the stage with him.
In fact, I couldn't resist taking this picture; this is what it looks like to share the stage with John Lewis:
And after the ceremony, we all moved on to a fantastic party. I invited members of the INNER HIVE, and it was an honor to share the evening with those who could make it, representing the entire INNER HIVE squad. It was so much fun to hang out with loyal and enthusiastic readers on this special night for me and the strip.
The Herblock Foundation will post a video of the speech, and I will include it here once it is posted.
UPDATE: Here is the video of the speech:
Thank you to all who came, and to the Herblock Foundation for this great honor.
