Canadian Cartoonists at Mohawk College!

This coming Sunday (Sept. 26), members of the Canadian Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society will be presenting a series of cartooning workshops at Mohawk College's Fennell Campus in Hamilton, Ontario.

If you're in the Hamilton area this weekend, and would like to meet some friendly and talented Canadian cartoonists, come and join us!

From the new NCS Canada Blog:

"Members will take turns discussing their career paths, their working methods, and the state of the industry for professional cartoonists working in a variety of specialties including newspaper syndication, animation, advertising, book and editorial markets."

Participating cartoonists include: Sandra Bell-Lundy (Between Friends), Paul Gilligan (Pooch Café), John Martz (chickaDEE Magazine), Leif Peng (this event's coordinator and instructor in Mohawk College's Graphic Design program), and myself.

Here's the synopsis of my presentation:

Drawing on 12+ years of experience facilitating cartooning workshops and animation courses for kids of all ages, Mike Cope will share some of the insights he’s gained and lesson ideas that he’s implemented at area schools, libraries, and recreation centres. He’ll also bring copies of the new “NetTrekkers Comic Yearbook #2” (published by LesPlan Educational Services Ltd.) that he illustrated, through which students explore Canada via exciting comic adventures.

There'll be time to ask our participating cartoonists questions, and best of all, the event is FREE!!

Visit the new NCS Canada Blog for complete details!

Stay TOONed!

  1. This looks like it will be a lot of fun. I wish I was closer.

  2. Thanks, David. Maybe we'll be able to video some of it or something ...
