Kenosha Festival Of Cartooning 2016 A Resounding Success!!


We close the book on KFOC 2016 with another successful festival!

Folks came from miles around to meet our terrific line up of guest speakers and a great time was had by all.

Over the next week or two we will take care of some post-festival details including the following:

Photo gallery for KFOC 2016 - we will be posting an official gallery of photos here on the website but, if you just can't wait, check them out on our Facebook page. (If you haven't "liked" the Kenosha Festival Of Cartooning page be sure to remedy that ASAP!) A big thanks to Mike Cope who once again took about 2000 great pictures of the event and then took the time to whittle that down to a more manageable number!

Audio archive - Thank you again to Greg Berg of the WGTD Morning Show and Kenosha's NPR affiliate for another great interview with the cartoonists. We will be posting a link here in the sidebar and, again, it's already up on the FB page.

Backer rewards - If you made a donation to this year's festival your programs, coins and posters will be on their way to you soon! Thank you for the support!

Huge Thank You's are in order and that we can take care of right now:

Thank you to the artists for taking 5 whole days out of their busy schedules to draw nonstop, give multiple presentations, teach cartooning and interact with fans.

Thank you to everyone who provided art to the gallery shows - most especially George Hagenauer, Rob Stolzer and Richard Pietrzyk who made their collections of comic art by women cartoonists available to us.

Thank you to John Glynn of Universal UCLick for overall support and specific sponsorship of the Friday night Drink and Doodle reception.

Thank you to Mike Peterson of Comic Strip Of The Day who, despite the fact that he could not join us this year, still managed to post links and updates to our goings on - some from a hospital room.

Thank you to Danielle Geary and Diane Levesque of Carthage College for assisting in making our artists available to Carthage students.

Thank you to TG's, Frank's, Andrea's and Marsha Caporaso for feeding the cartoonists.

Thank you to the Copy Center and Proform Technologies for all our printing needs.

Thank you to Meridith Jumisko and Deanna Goodwin of the Kenosha Area Visitor's Bureau for all their help promoting this event, both within Kenosha and to the greater tri-state area.
