More Cartooning Events this Weekend in Minneapolis

The following info was posted on the message board by conspirator Cedric Hosnstadt, who is also a member of the National Cartoonists Society… the NCS has a bunch of cool events going on this weekend with the crew they have in town for Fallcon. Here is the info from Cedric:

I know this is short notice, but the North Central Chapter of the National Cartooists Society is having their annual chapter meeting this weekend in Minneapolis to correspond with FallCon. Some well-known members include Bill Amend (Foxtrot), Michael Jantze (The Norm), Tom Richmond (MAD Magazine), and Jerry Van Amerongen (Ballard Street).

Here’s some free events open to the public:

1. Friday October 6, 6-8pm there will be a “meet the cartoonists” gallery opening at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. The exhibit, called “eyeToons” features over 80 cartoons and illustrations from members of our chapter of the National Cartoonists Society. More info here.

2. Saturday Oct 7, 1:00pm – Panel discussion at FallCon entitled “Ask the Cartoonists!”. Discussion will focus on the future of cartooning, impact of the internet, breaking into cartooning, working with publishers and syndicates, and Q&A from the audience. Panelists are Michael Jantze, Tom Richmond, Jerry Van Amerongen, and me (Cedric Hohnstadt).

3. Saturday Oct 7, 7:30pm – MCAD Auditorium – Slideshow presentations by artists Michael Jantze, Tom Richmond, and Jerry Van Amerongen. I’ve seen Tom’s part of the presentation before. He talks about his experiences as a parody artist for Mad Magazine and it’s a great presentation.

Finally, I will have a table at FallCon. Stop by and say, “hi”.

Again, this is all free! Hope to see some of you there.

Make sure to let them know the Cartoonist Conspiracy sent you!
