Toronto Comic Arts Festival

It's TCAF this weekend, team! If you're going to be in the big city this weekend, come by the Toronto Reference Library and experience one of the best (and totally free to attend!) indie comics shows around. I'll be there, alongside about a bazillion other web and print cartoonists. Trust me... it is going to be the best.

Edumucational

I'm back from Victoria, where I was busy teaching middle school classes about comics! Although quite frankly, they all knew plenty about comics already. It is so exciting to be in a room of grade 8 students who love Bone and Calvin and Hobbes just as much -- if not more! -- than I did when I was there age. Awesome.

I had a complete blast drawing some live cartoons based entirely on student suggestions... even though my clumsy cheap-webcam-and-tripod setup combined with an eager, shouting audience necessitated that I draw said cartoons:

a) Without pencilling
b) As quickly as possible
b) From about foot to the right. (So my head stayed out of the camera's way!)

But we made do! Characters were born, vital details were hastily inserted on the fly, and the results were... well, see for yourself! I started typing up explanations for them, but you know what? I think they stand alone just fine.





See? Perfect sense!

But now, I'm afraid, I am completely exhausted! So enjoy today's comic(s), and we'll return for a new one and a new round Q and A on Monday. See you then!

Back to School

Today, I'm giving a presentation about being a cartoonist to a few classes of middle school students! It's the first time I've ever done something like this, and I am simultaneously excited and terrified. I've rigged up an effective but completely ridiculous looking system so they can watch me draw -- all I needed was a projector and screen, a laptop, a webcam, an old tripod stand from my convention banners, and a lot of duct tape. Just watching me set it up is really a piece of entertainment in and of itself!

Chris Yates' gorgeous one-of-a-kind X & Y Baffler puzzle is now up for grabs! Man, I had so much fun working with Chris on the design. I couldn't be more excited about how it turned out! And the best part is, the buyer who scores it will be helping to support two independent interwub artists at the same time. That's efficiency, buddy!
