The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum Blog

The OSU Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum has started a lively blog reporting on their acquisitions and events, complete with Twitter feed. The library holds the worlds largest collection of cartoon art.

Recent blog entries have covered the birthday of comics historian Bill Blackbeard (the above drawing is by one of my favorite cartoonists, the great Alfredo Alcala), original art by Alfred Andriola and visiting cartoonists Matt Madden and Derf.
