AG-Strongman_1232552176The guest speaker for our June 18th meeting of Cartoonists Northwest is Allen Gladfelter.

Allen draws comics about talking cars, space women, repo men, drunken luchadores, smart dinosaurs, homeless billionaires, ghost detectives, and intrepid ethnobotanists. If it’s amusing, diverting or edifying, then there’s a good chance he’s drawn it.
He has worked as a Game Artist and Character Designer for Fat Rascal Games’​ POKER HEROES, a casual RPG game.  He was a Production Artist doing layouts and character design for HALF-COCKED, an animated webseries produced by Primary Weapons Systems.  Allen has drawn comic books for Pixar’s CARS and Dreamwork’s PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR comic series.

Kevin Boze is back to host a CNW Fun Activity Meeting!  On Saturday, April 16, Kevin will lead the group through the improvisational awesomeness that is:  the Lo Linkert Gag, Situation and Idea Finder!

Lo Linkert Gag, Situation and Idea Finder

Lo Linkert Gag, Situation and Idea Finder

Legendary cartoonist and gentleman Lo Linkert came up with a brilliant tool to help any cartoonist through that dreaded dilemma of  “I Need To Draw A Cartoon But My Mind Is As Blank As This Sheet Of Drawing Paper / Wacom Screen.”

Lo’s Gag, Situation and Idea Finder aids the creatively challenged gag cartoonist by coming up with the Who, the Where, the When.  And while it’s a powerful tool for the professional in need of a creative muse, it’s also bound to be a juggernaut of jocularity with a room full of cartoonists!  Each circle of the wheel spins independent of the others, so a multitude of humorous cartoon situations are possible.  Random suggestions when shuffled together sometimes can make for a great cartoon idea!

Come to the April CNW Meeting and Kevin will make a believer out of you!
