Come All Ye Toonheads!

It’s the end of the year as we know it, but does that mean Cartoonists Northwest will be doing something “sketchy” for the final meeting of 2009? Well, yes and no! How ’bout something completely different? How ’bout the chance to create your own Christmas ornament or holiday gift out of glass? Yes, that’s right: finally a new way to channel some of that “hot air” we all exhale in great big puffy clouds! We’ll be meeting for our December gala at Blowing Sands Glass Studio. Everyone is invited to blow their own pumpkin (approx. 4″ diameter), float (approx. 6″-8″ diameter), or ornament (approx. 4″ diameter) for $20 per piece (they’re giving us a $5 break off their regular rate). No experience is necessary (literally a 3 year old has done it). We will need to know by Thursday, December 17th how many folks will want to participate, because the studio hosts need to know how many blowers they’ll need. E-mail us your name and how many folks you’ll have participating. (more…)


You can’t mail it in! You can’t phone it in! You can’t dropkick it in! NO! You have to be THERE! Come to the Cartoonists Northwest meeting in November and cast your on-the-spot vote for the office of President of Cartoonists Northwest! Exercise your franchise! Hear a stirring speech from outgoing President Keith Curtis, whose rhetorical skills are, some say, like hearing a space marine channelling Obama, FDR, and Dr. Bronner simultaneously. (more…)

Autobiographical Comics Are Squinky Comics!

Before you don your Halloween costume, look in the mirror. Yes, you’re abominably ugly even without the help of the Conan O’Brien mask , but that’s okay. The point is to look beneath the surface. Because underneath that revolting corporeal envelope, there lies the throbbing, raw material for the truest and most original comic book in the universe – – the one about yourself! Come to the October meeting and find out how to peel back your persona and confront the pulsing, living soul within, enslave it to your cartoonist will, and thus begin your journey toward an astoundingly squinky creation – – your very own Autobiographical Comic.
