Ladies and Gentlehens, Boys and Ghouls, Squids of all ages! Presenting the Pretentious Pencilled Prestidigitations of one Daniel McConnell:
Cartoonists Northwest member since 19 and Eighty something … I have the Penstuffs to prove it!
And Member in Good Standing…not ‘Great! Standing’ of the National Cartoonists Society since Sept 12, 2012.
I will be presenting a variety of my artwork, which will run a wide gamut from Scientific Illustrations, portraiture and surreal landscapes and prints to Caricatures and many things in between. I’ll pass around my first inked comic book work for NOW Comics and Marvel Comics and copies of my single panel gags and two of the originals bought by Reader’s Digest magazine this summer, plus my Then & NOW comic strips for the Good Life magazine. There will be Sneak Peeks of a Graphic Novel Project I am working on with an Unusual Gang of Idiots. Unusual because they ALL are Not associated with MAD magazine….just Most of them… except ME and maybe Greg!
There will also be framed artwork to pass around…don’t get your smudgy digits on the glass please and No Peanut Butter and Jam fingers at the meeting Bill Morse! (Just kidding Bill you’re a very fastidious guy! Maybe it was Vic S.)
I may be revealing some Top Secret Information to you and will for sure reveal some information about NCS that will come as a surprise to you and make you jump for joy or ‘Lump for Loy’, if you’re one of those kind of people. A bending of the membership regulations for your benefit will be discussed along with a discussion about the benefits I received from being an NCS member and rubbing shoulders with the likes of Nick Meglin, Tom Richmond, Sam Viviano and the late great Jack Davis and Sharp as a Knife wit of Mel Lazurus just to name a few. I also met Rchard Thompson Twice!! before the dastardly Parkinson’s Disease took him this last year. The NCS has a Northwest Chapter and is entitled NCS NW! I kid you not! Todd Clark was the first Chapter Chair, Geoff Hassing was the second Chapter Chair and I took over for him this year. I’m Number 3! So please come to the meeting! There might be some FREE stuff and I’ll also show off some of Aaron McConnell’s books for those of you who have not seen his 600 pages of Graphic Novel labor from the last 6 years.
See you at Artist & Craftsman!
