Run, do not walk, to Mark Anderson's blog for a rundown of the OSU 2013 Festival of Cartoon Art.
Mark gives on-the-scene reactions to the presentations and who he met and what went on during this tri-yearly event. (The next one is in 2016.)
This Festival was historic since it was not only a bunch of great seminars and events about cartooning -- but also the grand opening of Sullivant Hall, The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum.
