Congratulations to Jackie Miller, the Baltimore Guide’s circulation and billing director, for winning second place in the Maryland-Delaware-D.C. Press Association’s 2012 Editorial Contest in the Editorial Cartoon category for non-daily newspapers.
“I’ve won that award before,” she laughed. “I’ve won it quite a few times.”
Miller, 60, is a resident of Overlea and has been married for 31 years as of yesterday. She has worked at the Guide since July 2010.
Her entry, right, depicts the monster and the elephant in the room that is the federal deficit. It was published in the Guide on Wednesday, Oct. 3.
Miller is a lifelong watercolor artist, completely self-taught.
“I couldn’t afford college, so I found my education in the Baltimore County Library,” she said.
Miller’s work can be seen hanging at the Baltimore Guide’s offices, 526 S. Conkling St. She takes commissions.
“I will do whatever anyone asks,” she said. “I don’t do murals anymore, unless they’re only as high as me.”
Miller’s email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
