Portland is Getting Weirder!

May 23rd, 2017 | Posted in News

I’ll be one of a huge list of cartoonists who will be participating in a massive book signing in Portland OR this Sunday! With the National Cartoonists Society‘s Reuben Awards Weekend taking place there this weekend, there’s plenty of cartoonists in town! I’ll be doing caricatures and sketches of Alfred, plus I’ll have a limited number of copies of MAD and “Goodnight Batcave” with me… but feel free to bring your own copies of books or MADs which I’ll sign for free.

Here are the details from the NCS website:

Members of the National Cartoonists Society will be participating in a group signing event during the Reuben Awards weekend in Portland Oregon over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. The signing will take place on Sunday, May 28th from 1-4 pm in the Atrium Ballroom of the Hilton Portland Hotel, 921 SW 6th Ave. in downtown Portland.

Admission to the event is free to the public, and the cartoonist will be signing books and sketching for their fans. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own items to sign, but many cartoonists will also have books and prints available for purchase.

Wacom will also have Cintiqs set up with projection screens and several cartoonists will be drawing live digital caricatures for fans.
