As I've blogged a few times previously, one of the most enjoyable parts of participating in the Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival is the chance to draw a Big Board cartoon - large 8 x 6ft boards set up in the town square where about 20 cartoonists get to draw, paint and chat to the wandering (and occasionally bemused) public:

I've be working on another big board this year, so will look forward to the slightly worrying prospect of turning this into a large, funny cartoon. Well, It'll be large at the very least....
Below is a tiny peek at my design for this year's board. Will post the finished board when it's all done and dusted! If you come along to the Festival, say hello - I promise to wipe my paint flecked hand before shaking yours.
Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival 2010 will be held on 22nd – 25th April
This year's theme is Magic, Myth and Mystery!
