Cartooning live – Herne Bay Pier – Saturday August 5th 2018
Lastly, we welcomed back Martin Rowson, who offered a free workshop on drawing caricatures at Pettman house. Massively oversubscribed, locals were thrilled to be shown how to draw caricatures by an expert.
Our annual PCO exhibition at Beach Creative was titled “Turning the Tide”. In addition to the festival theme of women, we were delighted to see many cartoonists chose to interpret the topic to comment on the shocking amount of plastic in our oceans.
And we also had another exhibition in the Rossetti Gallery at Beach Creative, entitled GAGGED – an exhibition of cartoons about censorship and the repression of cartoonists around the world, in collaboration with Cartoon Rights Network.
We returned to the pier on Sunday for the annual Cartooning Live event and were happy to have more women cartoonists join us there then ever before.
