Cartoonists group presents ‘Shop Talk II’

The WNC group of the Southeast Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society will be presenting a day of “Shop Talk” on Saturday, Sept. 11, at the Skyland/ South Buncombe Library in Asheville. The program will run from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., with a break for lunch at noon.

Headlining the event will be two members of the National Cartoonists Society: Michael Jantze, artist of the comic strip “The NORM” and an instructor at Savannah College of Art and Design; and Julie Negron, artist of the comic strip “Jenny the Military Spouse” for Stars and Stripes magazine. Several other artists from the WNC area will also be presenting a number of programs on various facets of the work involved in cartooning and illustration.

An informal portfolio review will be held during the lunch hour and students of all ages are encouraged to bring along samples of their work for review by one of the attending professionals. Weather permitting, there will be light refreshments served at the library gazebo.

The event is open to the public and free of charge. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
