Car-Toon capers!

The Really BIG Cartoon Day is approaching – for those who don’t have it in their diaries yet it’s the day after the bonfire, Sunday 16 October. HOT’s Erica Smith is one of the organisers, and here she tells you what is going to happen, as well as why she got involved.

Free cartoon workshops for all

Hastings Cartoon Festival opened with a big cartoon BANG! last Thursday at Hastings Museum. The extensive Martin Honeysett retrospective is the first temporary exhibition in the main gallery for over 20 years, and is supported by an excellent collection of cartoons about the Battle of Hastings by Honeysett’s contemporaries from the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation in the upstairs gallery. The shows deserve a couple of hours of your time, and will guarantee to put a smile on your face on the dullest of autumnal or wintery days.

Martin Honeysett, home to roost at Hastings Museum, starts cartoon festival with a bang

The opening of A Taste of Honeysett at Hastings Museum this Thursday is the launch event for Hastings Cartoon Festival. The retrospective of Martin Honeysett’s work was exhibited at the London Cartoon Museum earlier this year, and Hastings’ locals are delighted to see the artwork of one of the country’s most highly regarded cartoonists back in the town that he made his home. HOT’s Erica Smith sketches out the high points of the Cartoon Festival.
