Alumni Highlights: Funny Ideas

John Kovaleski ’84 (graphic design) received a FineToon Fellowship for 2002 from The Washington Post Writers Group. Chosen from more than 400 applicants, Kovaleski received $5,000 and the opportunity to learn about comic strip syndication through a series of seminars and mentoring. Kovaleski is developing a strip entitled “Bo Nanas” about the adventures of a talking monkey.

Kovaleski, who lives in Spencerport, N.Y., has been a cartoonist and illustrator for more than a dozen years. In 1999, he was nominated for a Reuben Award from the National Cartoonists Society in the category of advertising illustration. He teaches courses in cartooning as an adjunct faculty member at RIT.
