Who We Are

We Are the Chicago Chapter of the NCS (National Cartoonist Society). Our NCS Chapter participates in many events throughout the year. If you’re interested in having us at your event, give us a holler.

We draw comics, we animate, we educate and we get together to talk shop and have a good time.

We’re based in the Chicagoland area and our members are located throughout the country.


The NCS/Chicago chapter sponsors regular meetings for working Chicago area cartoonists/caricaturists/animators and others who want to socialize, network, and/or just doodle with other similarly minded creative cartoonists in a friendly informal environment, while drinking beer. Interested in stopping by? Contact T. Brian Kelly for info on our next event. We meet in Oak Park, Evanston, and various locations in Chicago.
