Cartoon Talk May 9

'Better Than Melatonin' Cartoon Talk
May 9, 2018
6:30 to 9:00 PM
by the Society of Professional Journalists

If you’re in the area and have nothing better to do, like a root canal or prep for a colonoscopy, then come on down and spend the evening with me babbling about the often misunderstood and rapidly diminishing world of EDITORIAL CARTOONING. As a 35 year veteran of second stringers in the field — I offer some insights into the trade, the perils, struggles, challenges to free speech and offer a glimpse behind the curtain in the development process — among other things. And, I will share samples of my outrageously irreverent, often left-leaning (occasionally right-facing) political renderings. We’ll end with a Q & A session, so bring your slings and arrows (metaphorically); no tomatoes though, please… I’m allergic.

AND, there will be a cartoon as a door prize. Suitable for framing, this little gem also makes a good coaster, placemat, doormat, bathroom mat (absorbent Strathmore Bistrol vellum) and makes the perfect target for the NRA.

Tickets are a measly 5 bucks. (tickets are going fast, so get on the stick!)

Here’s the link with all the poop that’s fit to poop: an evening with editorial cartoonist steve-artley
