NCSFest Video of Interest

There’s a little something called the NCSFEST (i.e., the National Cartoonists Society Festival) happening this weekend on the left coast.  Here’s a link to a video featuring several New Yorker colleagues, including Arnold Roth, Jason Chatfield, and Lars Kenseth (his scene at the 5:12 mark is a highlight, along with Mr. Roth’s affectionate Gold T-square moment at the very end of the video).
