How one cartoonist 'live-tooned' SXSW

The New Yorker editorial cartoonist and creator of Too Much Coffee Man Shannon Wheeler was at South by Southwest Interactive to chronicle the event as only cartoonists can.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Without a doubt, Grumpy Cat was the most talked-about sensation at the Mashable tent here at South by Southwest Interactive over the weekend. Editorial cartoonist Shannon Wheeler has been "live-tooning" the show for VentureBeat, and he chronicled his experience of not being able to see the diminutive feline.

The line for Grumpy Cat was the longest line at the show this year, winding around the block and requiring several hours of waiting. Wheeler, for his part, noted accurately that, "Grumpy Cat is more popular than Al Gore."
