A couple of months ago I shared the announcement of a “Cruise with Cartoonists” event to take place next January. I was one of several guests set to do presentations, drawing sessions, classes, etc. Seven days in the Carribean… it would have been fun. Proceeds would benefit the National Cartoonists Society Foundation and its programs like the Milt Gross Fund and “Cartooning for Kids”.
Unfortunately the cruise did not meet the minimum number of bookings needed to proceed, so the cruise line has cancelled it. If you were one of the few who did reserve a cabin, you should be able to get a full refund of any deposit you put down on the trip. Anyone who booked the cruise under my name, I am offering to do a free caricature of you and/or your significant other as a way to say thanks for the efforts to support the NCSF.
Ah, well. It was a fun idea. Cartoonists are a far cry from TV, film or rock stars, even those that do major features like “Zits”, “Baby Blues”, etc. Themed cruises are all the rage right now, but not this one, I guess.
