Sketchbook: Writers on War at The Strand

I enjoyed the Writers on War panel discussion among veterans, writers, veteran writers, and creators hosted by The Strand yesterday evening, and thought I'd share some of the drawings from my sketchbook of the speakers.

More Photos from The Characters Show

Here are a few more snapshots of the evening. On February 1st, I had a solo show at LaunchPad in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, documenting ONE HUNDRED friendly, contemporary cartoonist's faces. It was lots of fun (and lots of work). Special thanks to Robyn Chapman, Diana Ho, Christopher M. Duffy, Edwin Vazquez, Nick Zutrau, Maki Naro for their help (And Connie for the chocolate!)

Characters Reception

Robyn Chapman of Paper Rocket Minicomics took some really lovely photos of the opening reception this past Saturday. It was a fantastic event and lots of friendly faces turned up. Many cartoonists were in attendance, and we had a good time chatting and catching up. In our busy schedules, it was nice to take a moment to spend with each other and celebrate being part of the same creative family. You can see more photos of the evening on Robyn's blog.
