Panel discussion: 1:30pm-4pm
Sioux Falls downtown library
I don’t know all of the details, but it is open to the public, and will have several cartoonist guests including Chris Browne, and I heard the feature speaker is a headline writer for ‘The Onion’
Yes, some Vikings are veg heads! Gotta hand it to my buddy Chris Browne (Hagar the Horrible) and his Thanksgiving post on FB. I suspect his banquet table was full of sweet potatoes, cranberries, mashers and pumpkin pie.
In 30+ years of cartooning, I’ve never seen a politician, let alone a Prime Minster, react to cartoons and / or questions in such a way that he (or she) would resort to personal abuse and denigration of the satirist at a press conference. Julia Gillard lost it.
The Australian Prime Minister attacked cartoonist Larry Pickering at a media conference, not once but three times, labelling him, his cartoons and relevant revelations and questions about her dodgy past, a ‘misogynist’, ‘sexist’, ‘smear’ campaign. (He’s drawn a relatively few cartoons of Julia nude – but no private part showing). Commentators are now wondering, “Golly, Pickering hasn’t drawn male politicians like that, has he? He must be a misogynist sexist. The cartoons are offensive. He must be a woman hater.”
And to think Councilor Vernon Brown was upset about my cartoon of him in a swimsuit at Drake Springs Pool.
