Japanese Earthquake Cartoon Appeal

May 5, 2011 in News

PCOer Martin Honeysett writes:

I’ve been asked to pass on this request for cartoons to support those affected by the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami, where many will be suffering long after the media focus has moved on. This appeal is from the Kyoto Cartoon Congress who seek entries for an exhibition in Kyoto later in the year.

The theme is “Japan: Never giving up” reflecting the stoicism of the Japanese in coping with natural disasters, in memory of the victims and offering our encouragement to the survivors who have to rebuild their lives.

Details and entry forms can be downloaded from www.kyoto-seika.ac.jp/kicc/

Martin spent two years teaching cartooning at Kyoto Seika University Cartoon Faculty as a visiting professor. You can read about his experiences here in Bloghorn.
