My cartoon “Man of God, Law of Men” has been selected among the best 100 cartoons of the Netherlands in 2019 and it will, therefore, run for the Inktspotprijs 2019, the prize awarded by Pers en Prent to the best cartoon of the year!
✨✨ The first OltrEconomia Festival illustrated political satire contest is officially open!! ✨✨
The theme of the contest – and of the Festival, in Trento from 30th May to 2nd June 2019 – is “Lands of Disobedience”, that is lands – real or metaphorical – where civil disobedience takes place. Here’s the LINK: https://oltreconomia.info/contest/
The initiative is sponsored by Strike, The Cartoon Movement, Cartoon Home Network International and powered by my #MyTakeOn project and obviously the OltrEconomia Festival.
✨ I am one of the winners of the contest for stories that make the difference ‘Strike 2018’ – whose final I took part into yesterday! ✨
It’s been an amazing experience, for so many reasons it’s hard to squeeze them up in a single post without being prolix. Suffices to say I got the chance to reflect on myself, on my personal story – how I became a cartoonist – confronting it with 9 other incredible stories, told by excellent and energetic storytellers. Everyone was amazing – the organization, the participants, the public – and I’ve got the sensation this contest will live a long and exciting life!
Here’s the video of the awards ceremony!
