As many of you know, I am a big advocate for encouriging artists to get involved in the artist community, and being a part of cartoonist organizations wherever you may live. It is a great way to network as well as meet some great talent, hear some good stories, look at beautiful art and make some good friends. I am personally involved in the (NCS) the national cartoonists society, (www.reuben.org)the (NCN) the national caricaturist network(www.caricature.org) and (CAPS) The comic art professional society,(www.capscentral.org) that meets in burbank once a month. Anyway, last year I helped organize a banquet where we honored the great Jack Davis. This year I have helped organize a banquet where we will be honoring the great Stan Lee Next month. One of the things we do is have all the artists of CAPS, do an original drawing for the person that we present to them in a beautiful leather bound book and honor them with the Sergio award. Based on Sergio Argones, one of the founders of the group and who attends each month. Anyway, This was my sketch for Stan.
