Thank you so much to the Art Directors Club for awarding my book "Belonging" with the gold cube and discipline winner cube at last night's gala. It was moving to see that many of the winning pieces addressed the most important issues of our time: animal extinction, alternative truths, gun violence, sex trafficking, gay rights, inequality, immigration laws, global warming (and more). The black cube went to the New York Times' "The Truth is Worth It", which outlines very effectively the important work that's done by the US press to uncover the truth: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWWkJCY2jDg ...
