#5. Catch artist Sally Kindberg at Mario’s Cafe
A chance meeting in Shetland a couple of years ago between author/comic strip artist Sally Kindberg, a regular at Mario’s Cafe, and Shetland Times cartoonist Smirk (aka Stephen Gordon) resulted in an exchange of over 100 illustrated postcards now on display at longstanding artisan caff Mario’s.
Smirk, the UK’s most northerly cartoonist, wore his kilt and bonnet for the opening the other week. Good for him. And the original cartoons, limited edition prints and postcards are on sale at the cafe so grab one with your latte. Or flat white, if you must. Exhibition ends April 6th.
