AAEC Convention Photos, Pt. 1:
Posted by Mikhaela Reid

The Cartoonists With Attitude crew was out in full force at the 50th Anniversary Convention of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (of which organization Ted is Vice President) earlier this month. I had 200+ photos, which I’ve cut down quite a bit and divided into sets. Here’s the first bit (which you can also watch as a slideshow):

As you can see, Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich was our banquet guest speaker. I have to admit that as much as I’ve been a big fan of Kucinich’s positions on pretty much everything, I was in such a hyped up mood (perhaps a result of sharing one small hotel suite with 5 other cartoonists for four days) that I didn’t really pay attention to his speech.

Coming up: coverage of AAEC and CWA panels and signings, etc.
