…and in a puff of smoke, Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival 2010 appears! Starting today and running until Sunday the Festival enters it’s seventh year with the theme of Magic, Myth and Mystery. Like last year I’ll be there alongside Matt Buck (Twitter) and Royston Robertson (Twitter) reporting on all the cartooning fun for Bloghorn, the blog of the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation.
We’ll be tweeting, blogging, videoing, and photographing our way around the exhibitions, workshops, talks and live cartooning. Although I don’t have any cartoons in the exhibitions this year I have drawn the suitably magic and election themed cover for Foghorn (the PCO’s cartoon magazine), which will be on sale at the Festival, or by subscription here.
If you’re thinking of going along, there’s loads going on, so I’ve also put together a Google Map of the venues for Bloghorn (see below), along with a Google Calendar of what happens when, or you can download a PDF of the festival brochure or the S-MILE trail around Shrewsbury.
In other news – keep an eye on my blog for more updates, including my return trip to St Andrews Union Debating Society back in February, and the last Dr Sketchy’s in March.
