Speaking of Speaking…

The Jaques Art Center in Aitkin, MN will be having an exhibit of original cartoon art by “nationally known cartoonists, comic artists, illustrators and animators” starting one week from today, August 28th and running through October 3rd. Show organizer and cartoonist Duane Barnhart dropped by the studio last night to pick up several pieces of mine for the show, including a few original pages from MAD and other stuff. It sounds like a great exhibit with a lot of different work in it… I know that he has gotten originals from resident Minnesota cartoonists like Dan Jurgens (Superman, etc.), Jerry Van Amerongen (Ballard Street) and many more.

There is a reception for the show on Saturday, August 29th from 1-4pm at the Jaques Art Center, which will be a “meet the cartoonists” event and a chance for the public to speak with area artists.

I will be a special guest speaker on Thursday, September 10th at the nearby 40 Club Convention Center in Aitkin. I’ll be doing a multimedia presentation, talking about caricature in illustration, MAD, etc. The price of admission is a food shelf donation or a donation to the Jaques Art Center.

This should be a great show. Duane is working very hard on it and it sound like he has collected an amazing amount of top notch professional work.
