Lufthansa Lost My Suitcase:
More sketches of travellers in airport departure lounges. Not enough drawing of Legnica's cartoon festival Satyrykon. I was going to post some of the work that I saw, but the details are in the missing suitcase, except to repeat that Professor Zygmunt Januszewski's Warsaw Academy students stole the show. Such refreshing provocative and challenging work that will sweep away the old school crosshatching cliche ridden tribe of beer bellied flushed whiskery male dominated cartoonists of the world. It was beautiful to sit and swop stories with the united nations of 1970's illustrators and cartoonists but the Warsaw uprising will guarantee that this fine established cartoon festival of satirical art will survive and prosper in the years to come.
