Watch Lynn Interview Patrick McDonnell

From this year’s NCS Fest: click to watch the interview!

Join host and For Better Or For Worse creator LYNN JOHNSTON in celebrating PATRICK McDONNELL’S journey over the past 25 years with his iconic comic strip, MUTTS and everything along the way. Patrick is this year’s Elzie Segar Award-winner for his unique and outstanding contribution to the profession of cartooning.

Lynn and Patrick talk about everything from early influences like their friend, the late Charles Schulz, to the fantastic Lynda Barry, and working with Abrams Comic Arts Editor Charlie Kochman on Patrick’s new Book, The Art of Nothing. (Which is really something.)

NCS Fest – Free Online Cartooning Festival – Tomorrow

We’re delighted to announce the lineup for the 2020 NCSFest — a FREE virtual festival — which takes place September 12 from 10am EDT. This year, we’re bringing the Festival to you, in a reimagined virtual format. For the first time, you have the opportunity to join us—wherever in the world you may be—for a day of conversations, short films, and fantastic panels, featuring some of the most talented and influential cartoonists of our time.


Our 74th annual Divisional Reuben Award-winners will also be announced between sessions throughout the day, culminating in the announcement of our 2019 Cartoonist of the Year!
Be sure to take a moment to reach out and congratulate the nominees: Terri Libenson, Lynda Barry, Mark Tatulli, Raina Talgemeier, and Hilary B. Price!

We hope that you’ll join us for this, our first online NCSFest presentation. We were devastated to have to cancel our Kansas City Reubens this year, and we’re making the best of a bad situation, so please be patient with us if there are any technical hiccups on the day. We’re hoping it will all run smoothly as planned.

Specific times for sessions are not available due to latency limitations on the live stream. If/when we do any other live streaming events, we will ensure we have a better way of tracking when specific sessions will take place.

Visit for the full rundown of the day.
