Cartoon Conference in Amsterdam


On Wednesday January 17, the central library in Amsterdam (OBA) will host an evening about political cartoons. The main guest of the evening is Plantu, cartoonist for Le Monde and founder of Cartooning for Peace. Dutch cartoonists Joep Bertrams and Tjeerd Royaards will join the discussion and show some of their work. The evening is sold out, which is bad news for those wishing to attend, but yet more evidence of the continued popularity of editorial cartoons.
