Top MAD Magazine cartoonist Tom Richmond is running two workshops in Europe this summer, one in Vienna and another in Dublin.
“The Dublin one is just a few chairs short of a sellout but I’ve still got some open spots,” Tom tells us.
There are more openings for spaces in Vienna, so if you fancy a trip to Austria and the opportunity to be taught by a great cartoonist, now’s your chance!
