One last TCAF post

May 14th, 2009

Here is an amusing video that was produced for the Doug Wright ceremony last weekend. I was completely tickled to see Skim “animated”! Also, forgot to mention: congrats to both Matt Forsythe and Kate Beaton, who also won awards. Matt has always been very supportive of my work and I was thrilled to meet Kate, whose webcomics I follow.

Of the books I picked up, I am most impressed by Alan’s War, by Emmanuel Guibert. I had seen the book before and was blown away by the drawings, but the storytelling is no less fantastic. I actually spent some time talking to Emmanuel that weekend, and am kind of pissed that I hadn’t read it prior. There is so much I would like to ask him about.

Also pictured is Shary Boyle’s big book Otherworld Uprising (colour! pretty!). Meeting Shary was another highlight.
