Gems NI, Kestrel Conference
I had the pleasure of being invited along to the GEMS NI Kestrel Conference on the morning of Wednesday 20 March 2013. The event was presented by the well known voice of Seamus McKee who presents BBC Radio Ulster Evening Extra and who you can see in the cartoon selection below. It also had a number of famous political faces in attendance including the two Junior Ministers, the DUP's Jonathan Bell (above inside right) and Sinn Fein's Jennifer McCann (above far right). There were of course many more lesser known faces in attendance which provided great material for me to work with!
It was a great event and you can read more about it here and here. I have included a selection of photos of the pictures I drew on the day. I drew many more and because of the speed of production I missed the opportunity to record many of the images.Above right is my graphic depiction of Susan Russam, Chief Executive of GEMS NI. Below is a further selection of cartoons.
The above images are two more examples of some of the people and faces at the event. I should add that they all generally loved how I caught them.
