OSU Festival of Cartoon Art reviews

I told everyone to get to this year’s Festival of Cartoon Art in Columbus. With the grand opening of the Billy Ireland Library and Museum and the duly deserved praise for the library’s founder Lucy Shelton Caswell, this was the year to be there. But alas, I couldn’t be there myself and had to jealously experience it through various Facebook and Twitter posts. Both Friday and Saturday I looked at the cost of last-minute flights. It was only place to be for a cartoonist and it was difficult not to be there.

But, from the posts I’ve read, the experience was above and beyond expectations.

Mark Anderson, creator of Andertoons, has posted a summary of his experience.

Mike Peterson was also there. He’s filed several posts: Billy Ireland kicks off, Billy Ireland, Day Two, Behind locked doors and will be posting one more tomorrow.

Comics Reporter Tom Spurgeon was there. He’s created a page that will serve as an index of links to various roundups and reviews.

The festival was great!!! Stephan Pastis and Brian Basset gave great lectures. I also loved the screening of “Stripped”. My only complaint is that we have to wait another 3 years until the next festival!!! Good grief.
