TCAF Schedule

May 2nd, 2011

Hey all,
The studio will be CLOSED May 5-13. Why? Toronto and TCAF! I made this year’s poster! I will be on a panel with Adrian Tomine and Lorenzo Mattotti (!?)! TCAF is always great! Come visit! (Details below.)

Here is my TCAF schedule:


Signing, Beguiling/D+Q Table: 1:30-3:30

A6: Balancing a Canadian Identity w/ Working in the Mainstream
Panelists: Darwyn Cooke, Ray Fawkes, Kathryn and Stuart Immonen, and Jillian Tamaki
Moderated by Robin McConnell
Location: The Pilot
Time: 3:30 – 4:30

What part does being a Canadian play in a comic creator’s storytelling? With many of the largest comics companies being based in the United States, and publishers and an audience that have a US sensibility, how do Canadian creators retain their sense of self while working on licensed properties, or even graphic novels edited and published by people not from the same country that they are? This panel examines the Canadian identity in terms of the mainstream comics market.

7: Doug Wright Award Ceremony… my book Indoor Voice is nominated!


Saturday, May 8

U2: Illustration
Panelists: Lorenzo Mattotti, Jillian Tamaki, Adrian Tomine
Moderated by Caitlin McGurk
Location: The Pilot
Time: 12:30 – 1:30

Many cartoonists also have a career in illustration. Come listen to four prestigious comics artists and illustrators discuss the difference between creating in a narrative form (comics) and a static one (illustration).

Signing, Beguiling/D+Q Table: 1:30-3:30
