The National Cartoonists Society Berndt Toast Gang 50th Anniversary Gallery Opening at the Society of Illustrators Wednesday January 20, 2016
NYC: I was honored to be part of the Berndt Toast Gang's 50th anniversary this past Wednesday night at the Society of Illustrators. The Berndt Toast Gang is the nickname for the National Cartoonists Society's Long Island Chapter. Adrian Sinnott, chair of the Gang, put the event together. There were many cartoonists in attendance. Here are a few photos from the evening.

Love Adrian's tie!
