By George! It’s almost exhibition time

March 22, 2012 in Comment, General

The main Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival exhibition, Flights of Fancy, opens on April 4. Here is another cartoon submitted for exhibition by a member.

This is by Alex Hughes and seems appropriate on this post-Budget day. The exhibition will be held at the VAN Gallery, Shrewsbury Market Hall, and will visit other venues after the festival, including RAF Museum Cosford.

As mentioned previously here, a group of cartoonists from France will be attending the main festival weekend, April 19-22, this year. They are: Roger Thisselin (Roth), Jean-Michel Renault, Antoine Darmatoff (Jepida), Phil Umbdenstock and Emmanuel Maillard (Manu). Their exhibition French Flies (geddit?!) will be held at Theatre Severn

Taking a run-up to the Shrewsbury festival

February 22, 2012 in Events, News

Here’s another cartoon submitted for exhibition at this year’s Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival, where the theme is “Flying”. This is by The Surreal McCoy.

We will be featuring more great cartoons submitted to the festival exhibition by our members ahead of the festival in April. You can see the first drawing here.

If you’re not familiar with the festival, here’s a Bloghorn report on what we got up to last year (with more here and here.)
