Tom Richmond reviews his trip to Cuba
MAD cartoonist Tom Richmond reports back about his recent trip to Cuba along with Jeanne Schulz and others for an artistic and culture exchange with Cuban artists. Other’s participating in the trip: Justin Thompson, Brian Narelle, Lex Fajardo, and Hilary Price.
I was contacted several months ago by Jeannie Schulz, the widow of the great “Peanuts” cartoonist Charles Schulz, and asked if I’d participate in a cultural exchange trip with a group of cartoonists and representatives from the Charles M. Schulz Museum to Havana, Cuba. The trip would last 6 days, during which time we’d meet with a number of newspaper cartoonists, animators, fine artists, students and art teachers in Havana. The idea was to learn about cartooning, animation and art in Cuba while we shared with them what we do back in the United States. There would of course also be time to see Havana and experience some of the culture of Cuba.
How do you say “no” to THAT??
