The Pulitzers are in...
...and I'm somewhat vaguely associated with one!
First, big congrats go to Matt Davies for winning the Pulitzer for editorial cartooning.
Second, a big congrats to some reporters at my own place of employment, the Wall Street Journal (I work as a graphics artist there). Daniel Golden won in the Beat Reporting category for a series of articles on affirmative action, including a great piece on legacy admissions AKA affirmative action for wealthy whites ("For Five Supreme Court Justices, Affirmative Action Isn't Academic"), and an article on how the ruling wasn't really a victory for affirmative action ("Colleges Cut Back Minority Programs After Court Rulings").
But here's my own little brush with Pulitzer fame: Kevin Helliker and Tom Burton won in the Explanatory Reporting category for, in the words of the Pulitzer folks, "their groundbreaking examination of aneurysms, an often overlooked medical condition that kills thousands of Americans each year." It was an exceptional series of articles, and I had the good fortune to be allowed to draw an illustration/diagram for one, "Medical Ignorance Contributes to Toll From Aortic Illness". Scroll down the article, and you will see the web version (it looked nicer in print, they changed the fonts and things for the web, but still!) of my illustration/diagram, with my name on it!
