So you want to be a cartoonist? Doug Savage will tell you how.

Everything you ever wanted to know about being a cartoonist. Everybody is welcome! Feel free to bring a sketchbook and pencil to join in on any exercises and to take notes! This will primarily be an artists talk, with a question and answer period as well, on all the aspects of cartooning. Some small cartooning exercises may be applied.
