Despite really crummy weather and poor driving conditions, the Chicagoland Cartoonists Cabal officially had its first meeting last night.
Kyle Miller of Working Daze, and Worth Gowell of Small Wonder braved the elements and the unknown to hang out, drink coffee, and share cartoons with yours truly last night.
Topics discussed include taking over the art on a strip, being a stay-at-home-dad, things we can’t draw, Lego Star Wars, Google image search, our kids, and the hazards of drawing a dog going to the bathroom.
I’d actually gotten my camera out and put it next to my pack of stuff, but I’m manic enough in person and I didn’t want to scare anyone off the first meeting, so you’ll have to wait until March for pics.
Anyway, thanks to everyone for coming and making our first meetup a success!

Sounds like a great time. Yes — photos next time, dang it!
Probably just as well that you didn't bring the camera – wouldn't want to risk breaking it with our ugly mugs.
Seriously, Mark, you're a gracious host and all credit for the evening's success goes to you. I'm looking forward to the next one.
Aw shucks… I can't wait until the next one. And I'll try not to use the phrase "make love to the camera!"
It was a great idea, Mark. I enjoyed meeting you and Kyle and talking shop. Can't wait for the next one. Now I must run off and practice drawing bananas and horseys.–Worth
My horsies are pretty much bananas. I'm trying to consolidate.
What a minute, you're a cartoonist, and you need a camera? What happened to caricature? Then everyone could be a super hero!
LOL! Oh god, no one wants to see me try to caricature…
