Almost Live from Cali Colombia

September 18th, 2009 | Posted in General

In an odd coincidence just hours before I learned of the passing of Ismael Roldan, I was reminded of his being instrumental in making it possible for me to visit Colombia last summer when Colombian television reporter and personality Cristina Valencia emailed me a link to the above video. The video features her story on the 15 Sal??n Internacional de Historietas y Caricaturas Calicomix 2009 (15th Annual International Exhibition of Cartoons and Caricatures Calicomix 2009) where I was a guest speaker back in June. It’s in spanish of course but my interview section is in English with Spanish subtitles at around minute 4:15. There are also interviews with Mexican cartoonist Arturo Kemchs and Chilean cartoon historian/collector Claudia Contreras.

That was a really fascinating trip. I have been invited to attend a similar conference in Valparaiso, Chile about this time next year as a guest speaker. That gives me 12 months to learn Spanish. Debo aprender m?¬?s r?¬?pidamente!!

    Tom, Brazil is great, but if going there, brush up on your Portuguese, “Voce deve aprender mais rapidinho.” Similar, but not the same as Spanish. Love the Blog.

    • Tom says:

      Ooops. Actually it’s not Brazil where we will be going. It’s Chile, specifically Valparaiso. That’s Spanish.

    Once again, that looked like an awesome experience! Nice interview


Just added dates for Atlanta and London, spots still available in Dallas and Toronto!
