Two of the biggest professional cartoonist gatherings are competing for your attention this weekend — and the good news is, you can go to both! The National Cartoonist Society and Small Press Expo are both online on Saturday, Sept. 12, as they take their annual conventions online with virtual panels and their award presentations.
Can’t decide? Do a splitscreen and watch the Ignatz AND the Rueben Awards:
The NCS divisional awards will be handed out Saturday afternoon, with the AAEC’s own Pat Bagley going up against Mike Ramiriz and Sean Delonas: https://www.nationalcartoonists.com/2020/03/2019-ncs-divisional-nominees/
And if you haven’t gotten your fill of Keith Knight yet this week (and really, you SHOULD be watching WOKE on Hulu — streaming now!) — Keef will be giving a talk on America’s racial illiteracy on Saturday afternoon at SPX.
