Marcin Bondarowicz

Yesterday we had the opening op the exhibition of Marcin Bondarowicz and Roger Penwill in the ECC. The surrealistic art of Bondarowiz is in great contrast with the witty cartoons of Penwill. It lets us discover the great variety in cartoon art.
In a next post I'll show you the art of Penwill.
The catalogue (ISBN 978-83-87994-06-8) was published in May 2016 by the Museum of Caricature and Cartoon in Warsaw and costs 10 euro and is available in the ECC during the exhibition and in  the museum.

Desert Island Cartoon Books

I've been fascinated by desert island cartoons for a long while. If you want to see a fine selection of those kind of cartoons you can check my Facebook page Desert Island Cartoons. It's a selection of cartoons I find now and then in cartoon books or at exhibitions.

For the moment I have 2 desert island cartoon books in collection. Inselcartoons (1971-1996) is the first one. The cartoons in the book are collected by Farhad Vladi, a real estate broker in, yes, desert island cartoons.

The second book is Inselcartoons by Mordillo (Lappan, 2012).

There is another book I am longing for... if I can buy I at a cheap price: South Sea Cartoons - Desert island guys, gals and gags (Harold Meyers, 1955-Avon Publ.).
You find a cartoon selection out of this book on Mike Lynch's blog.
