I’ve mentioned the National Caricaturist Network‘s annual convention here a few times… it really is a one of a kind event. In 2006 a documentary crew did some filming at the con in Orlando and is in the process of putting together a video program of it. Here is the “trailer” for the film:
They also seem to be focusing a bit much on the negative side of things… and the crude and tasteless kinds of drawings that a small percentage of NCN artists seem to enjoy doing… that is typical of TV but is not typical of what you see at these conventions. Yes, the artists go crazy and do what they can’t get away with when drawing the general public, but most don’t need to resort to blue material to get attention. The art really is the focus at this yearly gathering.
I hope the final result paints the convention is the light in which it deserves, that being a gathering of very talented people to celebrate a unique art form.
