I've been away, but now I'm back
Sorry it's been so long between posts, but I've been up to my eyeballs designing a new website for the newspaper I work for. Luckily, they got me a spankin' new MacBook Pro so I can go on the road and continue to be their web slave. And where on the road am I going to be, you ask?
Why at the American Association of Editorial Cartoonists Annual Convention in Washington, D.C. They are celebrating their 50th anniversary (of which I've been apart of one), and there are a number of cool events.
Topping my list is Cartoonapalooza: Fireworks in Pen and Ink!
Ten of the nation’s best political cartoonists, Ted Rall, Tom Toles, Mike Luckovich, Mike Peters, Rob Rogers, Jack Ohman, Ruben Bolling, Ann Telnaes, Keith Knight and Mark Fiore, will be discussing their most controversial cartoons. There is a cocktail reception before the panel discussion, so if you want to go, get their early and drink often!
Here's some official info about the event:
