I have good news-I'm the newest member of the Texas Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society.
Visit this link to read my announcement.
The group is made up of comic strip writers and artists, political cartoonists, animators, film makers, and more. They host cartoon-related events in the state, and offer consultations with cartoonists about projects. The NCS/Texas Chapter has a speaker program where members talk about inspiration and insight into the world of cartoon art. They participate in charity "Cartooning with Kids" events, and much more.
I'm excited to start working with the group in 2018. I'll keep you guys posted!
