Last week's annual Association of American Editorial Cartoonists Convention at Hofstra University on Long Island was one for the books. A big congratulations to host Matt Davies and President Ann Telnaes for pulling off a memorable gathering! It was a fitting 60th anniversary celebration for our organization. The weather was delightful for this time of year (thanks Global Warming!) and the amazing luncheon at the Society of Illustrators was worth the effort it took to get into Manhattan. One cartoonist was overheard saying it was one of the best days of his life. Other highlights included the blistering tour-de-force of... Continue reading

A quick tweak to yesterday's transportation note: Turns out the Hofstra buses will only take you from the Hempstead or Mineola Station to the University itself. Not the hotel. Those of you arriving Thursday during the day can still catch a university bus to the convention events on campus. If you want to get to the hotel or the reception on Wednesday evening or Thursday, you'll still need to grab a cab or Lyft. Those addresses again are: Long Island Marriott 101 James Doolittle Blvd., Uniondale, NY 11553 The Cradle of Aviation Museum Charles Lindbergh Blvd., Garden City, NY 11530 Continue reading

The Times-Picayune highlights the work of it's long-time editorial cartoonist John Chase, who, beginning in 1927, drew for the paper for almost 60 years. The article manages to leave out two important facts: Chase was instrumental in the establishment of the AAEC in the early years of the association, and he edited and published "Today's Cartoon," the seminal collection of political cartoonists working in America in the middle of the 20th century (and the inspiration for the 2004 volume "Attack of the Political Cartoonists.") Still. worth reading the entire thing here. Continue reading

Back in 1954, an article in the Saturday Review titled "The Rise and Fall of the Political Cartoon" wondered if editorial cartooning was dead. The author of the piece complained that cartoons weren't as good as they used to be, and that they — and newspapers— were losing ground and influence to competition from "radio, television and news magazines." The article so enraged cartoonist John Stampone that he decided to fight back and form the "Association of American Editorial Cartoonists" in the hope it would "help restore some of the prestige to the profession." Organizing his fellow cartoonists took some... Continue reading
