OUR FEATURED SPEAKER
Bill Hinds, syndicated cartoonist and creator of the comic strip Tank McNamara. Hear Mr. Hinds’ entertaining stories of his successful career drawing cartoons. Hinds was the drawing half of the team, with writer Jeff Millar, that created the nationally syndicated sports comic strip Tank McNamara. The character of Tank is a former professional athlete who, through his sportscaster position, provides a humorous take on contemporary sports’ successes and foibles. Tank has run steadily in as many as 300 papers since 1975.
Hinds’ industry awards include this year’s Best Sports Cartoonist Ever by Total Sports.com and Sports Cartoonist of the Year (1987). Hinds is also known for his character Buzz Beamer in the magazine Sports Illustrated Kids. From 2001 to 2010 Hinds created the comic strip Cleats focusing on the humorous side of families and their children’s sports leagues.
Hinds, along with other well-recognized cartoonists, has visited the troops in Iraq and traveled with the USO to visit wounded soldiers in hospitals in the United States.
