Caricature Convention Fast Approaching

October 2nd, 2009 | Posted in News

This is just a reminder that the International Society of Caricature Artists annual convention is coming up fast, exactly one month away on Nov. 2nd. I understand from current president Robert Bauer that attendance is already at record levels, and that’s before the last minute people show up at the door.

Unfortunatley for those who did not register before Sept. 30th, early discount registration is over and it’s now full price to register:

  • Members- $250
  • Member guests- $100 each
  • Non- Member “Seminar Only”- $125

It might be a bit more if you show up at the event looking to register on the spot, so register early for a little savings. Click Here to get more info and to register.

The schedule of events has been released, so here are the main guest speaker times and events:

Tuesday, November 3
1:00 – 3:00pm GUEST SPEAKERS: Tom Richmond & Mark Fredrickson

Wednesday, November 4
1:00pm – 3:00 pm SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKERS: Hermann Mejia and Sam Viviano
3:30pm – 4:30pm GUEST SPEAKER PANEL: Fredrickson, Mejia, Richmond & Viviano
7:30pm – 9:30pm VIP Reception with Guest Speakers (gold members/special invite only)

Of course there are a great many other workshops and seminars going on, as well as the competitions and the creation of literally thousands of pieces of great caricature art int he main room throughout the week.

This will be a great event. It’s rare that this many MAD contributors get together to speak at the same time, and very rare to see so many of the “newer” members of the Usual Gang of Idiots featured. It’s also unheard of to have a non-member admission option for those just wanting to see the main speakers.

If you have an interest in caricature art, this is the place to be.

    Really bummed I can’t make this! It’s right in my backyard, too!
