The awesome Anne Morse Hambrock is gearing up for another fantastic Kenosha Festival of Cartooning this year. If you haven’t heard about the festival or know a lot about it, it’s a small (but growing) festival in Wisconsin that is a three-day love affair of all things comic art. Fans get meet their favorite cartoonists, see original artwork in a gallery, and attend workshops and panel discussions. This year’s festival is September 25th through September 27th. Even if you can’t be there, helping grow this festival is a great service. To that end, Anne has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise $10,000 to cover expenses. If you have the ability, I encourage you to donate. Also scroll down and watch the video produced by Tom Racine who can explain the festival much better than I can.
Here’s a list of this year’s speakers and presenters:
Jeff Keane of Family Circus, Denis Kitchen of Kitchen Sink Press, Lincoln Peirce of Big Nate, Rick Stromoski of Soup to Nutz, Todd Clark of Lola, Scott Stantis of Prickly City (also staff editorial cartoonist at The Chicago Tribune), Terri Libenson of The Pajama Diaries, Michael Schumacher author of Al Capp: A Life To The Contrary and Will Eisner: A Dreamer’s Life In Comics, and Paul Buhle comic historian and author of Comics In Wisconsin. And panel moderator Tom Racine of Tall Tale Radio.
