More Cartoonists chatting online: Oct. 21st edition!

Until 2020, Fall was the season for serious cartoon gatherings—but cartoonists aren’t letting covid slow down the discussion. Case in point: Clear your calendar for WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 21 for two big online events:

1) Force of nature Ann Telnaes kicks off the day with a online interview from VIEW Conference 2020. “From Animation to Opinion Art: An Interview with Ann Telnaes” streams live at 1:30pm EST.

The conversation with the prolific Washington Post cartoonist is, interestingly enough, part of the 21st International VFX Computer Graphics Conference. Telnaes began her career as an animation artist for Disney before becoming a political commentator.

2) But wait there’s more! At 7:30pm EST on WED OCT 21, catch a taped conversation with Jules Feiffer followed by a live chat with three of today’s most prolific political cartoonists!

Jules Feiffer, one of the 20th century’s most influential cartoonists, talks about how Trump forced him out of retirement, followed by live online chat with Woke’s co-creator Keith Knight, Politico‘s Matt Wuerker and The New Yorker‘s Liza Donnelly.

The cartoonist conclave is part of Improv Conference New Orleans and kicks off at 7:30 EST/6:30 CST on Wednesday, Oct. 21. It’s free to attend, but registration is required:
