France in October

A group of CagleCartoonists headed to France for the 38ème Salon International de la Caricature, du Dessin de Presse et d’Humour, joining an international assemblage of political cartoonists.
Daryl Cagle has a nice diary of the trip.

David Fitzsimmons filled not one, but two of his columns about the working holiday.



Columbus in September

If you missed the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists convention last month, here’s the opening panel featuring Rob Rogers, Patrick Chappatte, and Nick Anderson.



Ireland in Columbus

Speaking of Columbus, Ohio…
The Billy Ireland‘s deadline for applications for the Lucy Shelton Caswell Research Award is just a week away.

This award of up to $2500 supports researchers who need to travel to Columbus, OH to use the collections of the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. Awards may be used to defray travel expenses, living expenses in Columbus, or research costs.

To be considered, all applications must be received by November 1, 2019.



Charlottesville Through May

From a watercolor of President H. W. Bush depicted as Mary Poppins to President Barack Obama drawn and sculpted as an Easter Island statue, visitors see the range of political cartoonist Patrick Oliphant’s work in the first tour of his voluminous archive in the University of Virginia’s Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library.
Last year, Oliphant donated almost 7,000 drawings, watercolors, prints, sculptures and sketchbooks to the UVA Library. Complementing his exquisite art is a wealth of archival material: some of the scrapbooks in which he began his work every morning, plus correspondence, photographs, professional papers and recordings.
The exhibition, “Oliphant: Unpacking the Archive,” opened this week and will remain on display in the Harrison/Small building’s main gallery until May 30.

The University of Virginia has details.



No matter where you are. It’s tough out there for a cartoonist.
