Saturday, August 10, at 11:00 am Museum Meeting Hall 423 South Main
Mr. Byers’ presentation will provide insight into the process of creating political cartoons for newspapers today in comparison to the methods used in years past. He will include a brief history of political cartooning as well as his personal process from a given subject to a completed cartoon.
This presentation is free and open to the public.
Mr. Byers’ appearance coincides with the museum’s current exhibit, Cartooning Texas: One Hundred Years of Cartoon Art in the Lone Star State, to which the museum is adding an exhibit of the original artwork from numerous political cartoons Byers has created over the past decade. We thank Mr. Byers for the loan of his artwork for this exhibit. Mr. Byers has been a professional graphic designer, illustrator and cartoonist for clients worldwide since the 1970s. Since 2010, he has been concentrating on what he loves most – political cartoons. His talent for creating political cartoons carries the most meaning for him and the hope of being part of our country’s great political process.
