Well, the ninth annual Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival has been and gone - and it was a blast.
As I mentioned in the previous post
, this was my third year in attendance and the first as an official participating cartoonist. I'm pleased to say I was very happy with the way my six-foot by eight-foot Big Board turned out, and by the positive reactions from the public. The event was really well attended and everybody seemed to be having a fantastic time.
Here are four cartoons on the 2012 festival theme of 'flying', which were selected for the selling exhibition. The originals can be bought from the exhibition, still on show at the Visual Arts Network Gallery in the Market Hall in Shrewsbury.
( "Is this your first time flying with us, Sir?" )
( "He's never been able to recreate the thrill of his first skydive." )
(Perhaps we should set some sort of baggage limit..." )
( "You have no new messages." )
You may have seen the falcon gag in Private Eye some time back; the other three are new for the exhibition. I was really pleased with the dash of colour in the penguin cartoon, so I expect I'll try subitting some full-colour work next year.
The selling exhibition is on at the Market Hall until 30th April, and then goes to the Qube Gallery
in Oswestry from 5th May until 15th June. Then it's off to Wem Town Hall
from 20th June until 31st July, and then RAF Museum Cosford
from 5th August to 22nd September.
All the cartoons are for sale, so do make it along if you can and nab some original cartoon art at a very reasonable price!
