Bookmarks, an exhibition of cartoons on the theme of books, literature and libraries drawn by the UK’s finest and funniest cartoonists, is running now at London’s Westminster Reference Library until 22nd June 2019.
Organised by the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation, the show features work by over 30 of its members, including a host of familiar cartoonists from the pages of The Guardian, The Independent, Private Eye and the rest of the British press, whose signed originals and prints will be on sale.
During the exhibition, on Saturday 15th June 2.00 – 4.00 pm, there will be a free drawing workshop run by cartoonist Zoom Rockman, creator of the Zoom comic and the Beano’s “Skanky Pigeon” strip as well as work in Private Eye magazine. This event is free and suitable for all ages but spaces are limited so booking is highly recommended via Eventbrite.
