2014 Kenosha Festival of Cartooning

2014 Kenosha Festival of Cartooning

This past weekend I attended the Kenosha Festival of Cartooning for the first time, but it certainly won’t be my last! (More on that later…)

It was an amazing weekend put together by John & Anne Morse Hambrock. I can’t imagine all the time and work (and cake baking) that went into this. And apparently there’s a lot of pent up demand for something like this because it was enthusiastically, overwhelmingly well-attended!

And it was so nice to see so many old cartoony friends and make some new ones too. Pretty much it was just awesome.

OK, on to the details and plenty of pics:

Gallery Show

First there was the terrific comic & cartoon art exhibition, More Than Funny 2.

There need to be more chairs like that everywhere!

Cartoon Auction

Then there was the auction of original art and more raising money for the Children’s Hospital Clinic and Open Wings school. Again, a sampling:

Had I a place to put this in our home I would have totally gotten this. (I did draw on the back though.)

This and 2 other Andertoons cartoons sold. WOO!

I did end up winning two items: some original Big Nate art from Lincoln Peirce, and a Farley stuffed animal and two signed children’s books from Lynn Johnston. (The kids were thrilled!)

2015

And here’s the best news – not only is it happening again in 2015 (September 17-19), but I’m going to be a guest speaker!

So mark your calendars, and come on up and see me. I can’t wait to go again!
