FallCon and National Cartoonist Society Events this Weekend!

Just a reminder, there’s a ton of great art and cartoon events going on in Minneapolis this weekend.

First, of course, is FallCon. Minnesota’s largest comic book convention. Stop by my table and say “hi”.

Second, the North Central Chapter of the National Cartoonist’s Society is having their annual get-together in Minneapolis this weekend. They will hosting a table at FallCon, as well as the following events that are free and open to the public…

1. Friday October 6, 6-8pm there will be a “meet the cartoonists” gallery opening at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. The exhibit, called “eyeToons” features over 80 cartoons and illustrations from members of our chapter of the National Cartoonists Society. More info here.

2. Saturday Oct 7, 1:00pm – Panel discussion at FallCon entitled “Ask the Cartoonists!”. Discussion will focus on the future of cartooning, impact of the internet, breaking into cartooning, working with publishers and syndicates, and Q&A from the audience.  Panelists are Michael Jantze (The Norm), Tom Richmond (MAD Magazine), Jerry Van Amerongen (Ballard Street), and myself.

3. Saturday Oct 7, 7:30pm – MCAD Auditorium – Slideshow presentations by artists Michael Jantze, Tom Richmond, and Jerry Van Amerongen.  I’ve seen Tom’s part of the presentation before. He talks about his experiences as a parody artist for Mad Magazine and it’s a great presentation.

Again, this is all free! Hope to see some of you there.
