Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival returns to the town on Saturday 21 April, with professional and amateur artists creating drawings and presenting workshops around the theme of transport. There will be cartoonists drawing on big boards in The Square from10am to 4pm, a free cartoon exhibition at Bear Steps Gallery, along with workshops and talks at various venues.
Organiser Bill McCabe says, “This is a unique event which brings a small army of professional cartoonists from all over the UK and overseas to draw for the public. The event draws a huge audience every year with live drawing of giant cartoons in Shrewsbury Town Square as its centrepiece, alongside live caricaturing by some of the UK’s top professionals.”
