At Cartoon Movement, we've launched "Occupy Sketchbook
" today with contributions from Susie Cagle, Sharon Rosenzweig, and Shannon Wheeler. We'll have even more sketches from different cities next week. (And maybe a third after that.)
Some drawings of mine from the all night Occupy Portland rally to oppose the raid on the camp are up at the Portland Mercury
and I contributed a smidgen to their coverage which should be online later today. I'll have more from my experience there on Cartoon Movement in a week or two.
