Debate: 'A Comedian, Cartoonist, Screenwriter and Satirist Walk into a Library…'
If you happen to be in Ghent, Belgium this week, join us for public roundtable with a group of current humor practitioners who will discuss some of the challenges they face in the twenty-first century. Participants include stand-up comedian Shazia Mirza, writer and producer Annie Julia Wyman (co-creator of The Chair on Netflix and Welcome to Chippendales on Hulu), cartoonist Tjeerd Royaards, and Mike Gillis (head writer at The Onion).
The roundtable will take place on November 29, between 17.30 and 19.00 at De Krook, (Miriam Makebaplein 1). The event is part of two-day conference on satire on 29 and 30 November 2023 titled Humor and conflict in the digital age.
Upcoming review: Gaomon PD2200
The next product we will review is the Gaomon PD2200, a 21.5 inch pen display. At less than half the cost of a comparable 22 inch Wacom Cintiq, it's certainly worth exploring if this is a good alternative for cartoonists on a budget who do enjoy a big screen to work on. Stay tuned for the full review, which will go up in December. In the meantime, here are our other reviews of digital cartoonist gear and cartoon-related books:
