Kenosha Festival of Cartooning

August 1st, 2011 | Posted in News

This fall I will be speaking at the Kenosha Festival of Cartooning being held on September 14th-16th in… you guessed it… Kenosha, Wisconsin. The festival is being organized by Anne Hambrock, wife and right-hand-woman to creator of the syndicated comic strip The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee John Hambrock, who will be one of the participating cartoonists.

Besides John and myself, the festival will feature Between Friends creator Sandra Bell Lundy,¬¨‚Ćcreator of Pooch Cafe Paul Gilligan,¬¨‚Ćeditorial cartoonist for the Chicago Tribune Scott Stantis, creator of The Norm and head of Jantze Animation Studios Michael Jantze, and John Read, the publisher of “Stay Tooned” magazine and the curator of “One Fine Sunday in the Funny Pages” exhibit.

John’s “One Fine Sunday in the Funny Pages” exhibit, featuring the originals of 130 comic strips and cartoons that all appeared in newspapers on Sunday, April 11th, 2010, will be shown at the¬¨‚Ć H.F. Johnson Gallery of Art. Other events and presentations for the Festival will take place at Carthage College, The Kenosha Public Museum, and the University of Wisconsin at Parkside.

Check out the festival’s website for the complete schedule and information on attending.

    Hey Tom, as luck would have it, I’ll be in Milwaukee visiting family, friends, attending my 30th class reunion, and attending a wedding, so I’ will be up there during that week, and will make sure to drive down to Kenosha to attend this as well. Looking forward to seeing you there.
