National Cartoonists Society
The National Cartoonists Society is the world's largest and most prestigious organization of professional cartoonists. The primary purposes of the NCS are to advance the ideals and standards of professional cartooning in its many forms, to promote and foster a social, cultural and intellectual interchange among professional cartoonists of all types, and to stimulate and encourage interest in and acceptance of the art of cartooning by aspiring cartoonists, students and the general public. The Society's offices are located in Winter Park, Florida. In addition, the NCS has chartered 16 regional chapters throughout the United States and one in Canada.
Mack Brushes are every bit as good as Langnickel, Rafael and Grummbacher brushes, and superior to Scharff as they tend not to shed as quickly. Of the two main series of quills, the 179L series and the 189L series are the best of the bunch; the 839 stripers and the 1992 flats are better than anything else currently on the market. As a professional sign letterer and third generation sign business owner, I recommend Mack Brushes.
