MAD in Asheville

This past weekend the Southeast chapter of the National Cartoonists Society had a chapter event in Asheville, NC featuring a whole gaggle of members of the “Usual Gang of Idiots”, plus a bunch of other terrific cartoonists. I wish I would have been able to attend, but it was just impossible for me to get away. The lineup of speakers above is certainly stellar.

However, due to the magic of the internet here are three YouTube videos featuring Nick Meglin and Jack Davis. Great stuff from two great guys: EDIT- Sadly somebody objected to the posting of these videos, presumably either Nick or Jack, and Brian had to remove them from YouTube. That’s too bad, because there was nothing about these that anyone would object to or prevented in any way the ability for those featured in the videos from making money. In fact, it’s exactly this kind of exposure on the internet that could lead to MORE speaking gigs, some of which might the speaker(s) would get paid for. Oh well.

Thanks to Brian Vasilik, caricaturist and illustrator who attended the event and uploaded these videos for the rest of the world to enjoy.

    THANK YOU, Brian (and Tom), for sharing those videos! I wanted VERY badly to attend that gathering but was unable to, so getting to see some of Jack’s presentation was really a treat. I’d love to see other video of, say, Duck’s talk, if anybody recorded it like Brian did.

  2. Wow, thanks Brian for filming Jack and posting these up on YouTube. And thanks Tom for linking them here! What a treat!
