Bunny Bash 2014

June 27th, 2014 | Posted in General

Ended up planning a last second visit to my theme park operation in Massachusetts this weekend, and took the opportunity to swing through New York to attend the annual “Bunny Bash”. This is an unofficial NCS party hosted by the delightful Bunny Hoest Carpenter at her beautiful Long Island home. It’s a wonderful time and you see some pretty famous cartoonists there:

    It’s a shame good ol’ Clarke couldn’t be there.
