Canadian cartoonist visit children’s hospital

As mentioned earlier, three members of the Canadian chapter of the National Cartoonists Society were visiting the McMaster Children’s Hospital to draw for children and family members. Chapter president Mike Cope, Patricia Storms and Jonathan Mahood made the trip on Friday. The Hamilton Spectator did a nice write-up. Mike and Jonathan have both posted photos and write-ups of their experience.

From Mike’s blog:

Despite being in a hospital, the most infectious thing in the air was the positive spirit of the kids, who smiled as they watched cartoon characters come to life, and enthusiastically drew along with us if they could. As one mother observed to her sons, who were into creating superheroes and villains with Patricia, “I’ve never seen you guys so excited about drawing before.” The secret behind that was Patricia’s magical ability to draw them in.


Jonathan later wrote to me, “It’s kind of shocking how just a simple drawing can brighten up someone’s face.”
