Cartoon Delegate: The Idea

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The hurricane isn't the only blustery thing headed to the GOP convention in Tampa! I will be there too. Normally I would just sketch and blog ... but this time I am trying something different. I am teaming up with the ToonSeum (with valuable help from the Post-Gazette) to make a mini-documentary about what it is like to be a cartoonist covering the RNC and DNC conventions. I will be posting video clips here on the blog. Then, when I return, we will put the whole thing together and we will have a screening at the ToonSeum.

To help cover the cost of travel and video production, the ToonSeum and I put up a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo. We reached our goal of $3500 to cover hotels and cabs. We are still accepting donations to help cover airfare and video production. In exchange for a donation you will receive a fun cartoon-related perk. Watch the video below for more information ... and stay tuned!
