Inside the Cartoonist’s Mind

Online event Tuesday, December 1, 4 p.m. ET

How do you make sense of a complicated world in a single panel? In “Inside the Cartoonist’s Mind: Creativity in Challenging Times,” Ithaca City of Asylum’s artist-in-residence Pedro X. Molina and nationally syndicated cartoonist Rob Rogers provide a peek into their creative process, from headline to sketchbook to finished product.

The free online event takes place on Tuesday, December 1, at 4 p.m. Eastern Time via Zoom. Register here to receive the Zoom link in advance.

Pedro X, Molina, winner of the Courage in Editorial Cartooning Award from Cartoonists Rights Network International, was forced to flee Nicaragua with his family in December 2018 during a crackdown on dissent. Rob Rogers, a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, was fired by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for his cartoons critical of Donald Trump. They will discuss their experiences, then share their screens and let us watch their creations take shape.

“Inside the Cartoonist’s Mind” is organized by Ithaca City of Asylum, hosted by the Tompkins County Public Library, and funded by the Freedom to Read Foundation, which is affiliated with the American Library Association.

All are welcome, but subject matter will be targeted towards an older teen/adult audience. For more information, email ithacacityofasylum@gmail.com
