Adrian Sinnott New NCS LI Chapter Chair

The National Cartoonists Society Long Island chapter (the "Berndt Toast Gang") announces a new chapter chairman: illustrator Adrian Sinnott.

When I moved from NYC to NH last month, we were looking for a volunteer to step in and be the ringleader. Adrian was kind enough to be the BT Gang's "man behind the curtain" like I had been. I wish him much good luck. The lad will need it. Corralling cartoonists is not for the weak.

Above: a faked news item from Joe Vissichelli. This made the email rounds and the actual, real Daily Cartoonist site picked it up. This is a larger, more readable version than what's on the DC site.

And, so long as we're on the subject, below are a few strips by the group's namesake, Walter Berndt. He drew Smitty for more than 50 years. More on the history of the Berndt Toast Gang here.
