Cartoonists are sharpening their pencils as it is a month today until the tenth Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival.
The big weekend for the festival, when live drawing events will take place, is 19-21 April. For the first time there will be a full programme of events on the Sunday.
Before that, the main festival exhibition, on the theme of “Time”, will open on 2 April at the Upper Floor Gallery in the town’s Market Hall. The above cartoon was submitted for the exhibition by Procartoonists.org member Pete Dredge.
The exhibition runs until 6 May and will then appear at the Qube Gallery in Oswestry. We will have more detail nearer the time. You can also visit the official website and follow the hashtag #shrews13 on Twitter.
