Cisk organises a sketch-up in a brewery 3/7/2014

Around a dozen British cartoonists flocked to the Farsons brewery last month to spend a day sketching cartoons about Cisk.

The Cartoonists’ Club of Great Britain, which is one of the UK’s oldest cartoonist clubs, got the opportunity to see how Malta’s favourite beer is brewed.

Sporting their specially designed t-shirts, where the froth from a Cisk can burst into a Maltese cross, the cartoonists came armed with pens, paintbrushes and sketchbooks.

After the tour of the brewery, the cartoonists turned the Farsons visitors’ centre into a studio and began drawing cartoons featuring Cisk.

Cisk awarded a joint first prize to the best cartoonist of the day: Richard Skipworth who drew a cartoon version of Leonardo DaVinci’s Vitruvian Man holding four cans of Cisk, and Noel Ford’s cartoon Cisk Assessment.

This was the group’s third visit to Malta for their annual Mighty Malta Minicon, held between February 15-22.

The Cartoonists’ Club of Great Britain was set up over 50 years ago and today still stands to provide a social base for around 200 cartoonists who share tips, hold competitions, and travel together.
