…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.

Waaaay back in October (yes, I know it’s been a while…) I was invited up to Leeds by the lovely people at the Culture Vulture to the Holey Moley party to mark the return of a collection of travelling Moleskine sketchbooks.

Our theme was Naughtiness – which prompted a whole bunch of naughty cartoons and caricatures from our membership. (more…)

As previously mentioned, last weekend was Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival, and what an event it was! Luckily, the predicted storms failed to materialise (aside from a brief shower early on Saturday morning), and the sun shone throughout. Myself, Matt Buck and Royston Robertson were there to blog and twitter for thebloghorn.org, the blog of the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation.
Following on from the successful Dr. Sketchys in November of last year, Birmingham’s burlesque life drawing ‘anti-art’ school returned on Saturday for another afternoon of drawing, drinking and dames. This time, I decided to travel light, leaving the tablet PC at home in favour of sketchbook, pens and pencils. The theme this time was ‘Hollywood Babylon’, and the girls perfomed suitably movie-themed routines.
