The Round-up

January 27, 2012 in Links

Christian Adams, political cartoonist for The Telegraph, has begun blogging on a daily basis, providing a fascinating insight into the process behind his latest cartoons and offering up preliminary sketches and captions that didn’t quite make it. The blog can be found here, and is sure to be worthy of repeat viewings.

Sticking with the Telegraph, Matt Pritchett – long-time pocket cartoonist for the paper – has been interviewed by The Oxford Student.

Cartoon Movement has news of two cartooning exhibitions. Justice and Security: There is More Than One Truth opened at the London School of Economics on 23rd January, while Movement member Zunar has a solo exhibition – titled To Fight Through Cartoons – at London’s Free Word Centre from 15th February. More details can be found here.

Beano icon Dennis The Menace is to appear on the London stage in his very own musical, which runs at the Southbank Centre for three days next month.

In case this round-up seems too upbeat, fear not – a report by The Herb Block Foundation has claimed that the golden age of editorial cartooning is dead. The Daily Cartoonist highlights a few quotes and also provides a link to the full report, which features essays by 11 leading cartoonists.
