House of Women, Part I won an Ignatz Award for Outstanding Minicomic!
It's taken me awhile to process this event (which is why this post is a week and a half after SPX) but of course I'm exceedingly glad. Winning an Ignatz award is both a dream come true and a slight disappointment since upon coming home I found my life exactly as I had left it with its various challenges and problems unfazed by my new brick.
The brick now sits on my mantle. At dinner after the show I had a bunch of my friends sign it, transforming it from an anonymous chunk of rock into a constant reminder of the supportive and wonderful community I have found in comics.
Moral the story: Awards are nice but they aren't going to wash the dishes for you.
