PCO Procartoonists meeting

July 22, 2007 in General

Hello and welcome to the Procartoonists digital diary – one of the latest additions to the main portfolio website of the Professional Cartoonists Organisation.

The PCO diary is going to be the active and outward-looking part of our website, where we will be posting news, links and views about what’s going on in the organisation, with the membership and also, outside in the real non-digital world.

By way of proof-positive about this, here is a photo of some of the committee hard at work planning the future of the PCO. You’ll see Foghorn magazine production manager Tim Harries pointing out President Andy Davey’s appalling computer error. Senior committee men Noel Ford and Bill Stott, look on, appalled.

We met at the old custard factory in Birmingham, although, sadly, no custard was available. There was plenty of rain and as the second photo shows, some of us had a lot of fun (not) in trying to get home afterwards.

Foghorn design guru Tim Harries won the prize for worst journey home, finally docking in Newport, South Wales, a full 28 hours after the meeting wrapped up in Brum.
