Today we begin our series on “The Strip Show: A Celebration of Cartoon and Comic Art”. This free exhibit is on display at Honolulu Hale (weekdays 8am - 4:30pm) through March 12. It showcases the work of Comic Jam Hawaii, MangaBento and the late cartoonist Dave Thorne.  Here is one of the panels saluting Dave Thorne this one depicting his Thorney’s Zoo which appeared in the Star-Bulletin and the Star-Advertiser. Thorne was born on April 23, 1930 and passed away on July 22, 2012. He is considered “the force behind cartooning in Hawaii” and the “Jedi master of Hawaiian cartoonists”. He also taught cartooning at UH for 23 years. There are many more panels featuring his life story and other works at the exhibit.
