The Association of American Editorial Cartoonists will descend on DC next week for our annual convention and this year’s gathering features programming that is more public than years past. Under the banner of “Damn Cartoons” you can buy tickets to the events, including a Cartoon Death Match.
I’ll be giving a comics journalism talk with Susie Cagle on Friday at 11:30am. There’s a number of other panels and “Chalk Talks” featuring the likes of Joel Pett, Jen Sorensen, Pat Bagley, and Brian McFadden. Jake Tapper will be delivering our keynote address the final night. He started out as an aspiring political cartoonist, only to settle for a position as ABC’s White House correspondent.
Come down if you are in the DC area.
