A celebration of great comic art from around the world.
The great and the good will be gathering in Kendal next month for a cartooning jamboree. Over forty exponents of the comic arts will be drawing live, giving lectures, offering guidance and selling their wares. Among them will be PCO members Noel Ford, Des Buckley and Tim Harries (albeit sailing under CGGB colours). Tim (pictured below) will be easy to spot: he’ll be carrying a ukulele and copies of his new book, “Random Acts of Humour”. The Blog understands only the latter is available for purchase.
Another esteemed PCO member, Steve Bell, scathing satirist of the political classes, will be making a couple of appearances: one solo, the other drawing live in tandem with fellow Guardian cartoonist Steven Appleby. Surely one of the festival’s must see events.
The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival, Friday 16th – Sunday 18th October 2015. More details can be found here.
