It's time again for Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival 2013. The theme for the festival this year is 'Time'. It is a great pleasure to have been invited to the festival. I will be running a free cartoon strip workshop at the beautiful Wildlife Trust for children and adults.

Reports coming into my email box regarding Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival are very exciting indeed, it is somewhat disappointing that I remain in London chained to my studio drawing board missing out on all the bonhomie, but at least the oomph and spirit of the festival is being downloaded via text messages, emails and the winged chirrups of Twitter. Who needs a pair of spy specs when all one has to do is click on a social media button. Life is so much social media easier these days.
The weather, I hear, for the weather is almost at the forefront of all topics regarding any outdoor drawing pursuit, has been fair, to bad, to grizzly. But again, I learn that the cartoonists have been sheltered from wild April's unpredictable clouds by all manner of polyester sheeting. It is blustery. It is wet. But sometimes, it is not. Wet sheeting does not smell pleasant. Nor does, I might add, a wet cartoonist.

The Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival 2012 starts this Thursday 19th April up and to Sunday 22nd of April. 'Flight' is the theme at this years event. Hopefully, I may have two cartoons exhibited at the stunning Bear Steps Gallery in Shrewsbury. I say 'hopefully' because one never knows until one actually attends the private view as to whether one's artwork has been selected, or not. It is quite an acceptable quirk. I call it, the Shrewsbury quirk. I wish all my cartoon compadres attending the festival, a sky filled with cerulean blue.

Here's a cartoon print I sold at last year's exhibition; a fine example of a woman with quite a quirk indeed though the fainthearted may, quite possibly, shudder in her shadow.
