TCAF is this weekend. Are you coming? Or are you crying because you can't come? There's no in-between answer unless you live very far from Toronto, or hate art.
For those who don't know, TCAF is a FREE ENTRY art show held in the Toronto Reference Library on Yonge (near Bloor) in Toronto - officially called the Toronto Comic Arts Festival.
It's a two-day show this weekend, May 11 & 12, featuring extraordinary artists, and also people like me! It's the best show. The best. I'll be there, and all of these amazing people will be there too.
I'll be bringing my standard selection - some sweet prints, all of my GWS books, a few of the last McPedro plushies, and my B9 book (new this year!) - but I should also have (FINALLY!) copies of the Adventure Time book I wrote that's coming out next week!
I'll also be on two panels on Sunday, both in the nearby Marriott: 12:15-1:15 about humor in comics (where you'll learn why I'm a cartoonist instead of a stand-up comic), and 4-5 about Adventure Time, including peeps like Ryan North, Meredith Gran, and Mike Holmes!
I feel the need to note that fucking BILL AMEND of Fox Trot will be on that first panel, so you'll also get to watch me pee my pants. If you're not into that then don't come.
I'm looking to feature some guest strips during the week of May 27-31. Would you like to submit one? I'd like for you to submit one!
I'll be open for guest strip submissions next week (or, hell, in the next twenty minutes if you're David Willis) and the theme will be "What the hell has everyone else in this comic been up to?"
I'd love to see what you think Beatrice the Librarian, or Chris the Pirate and Melody, or Maureen and Jameson, or heaven forbid, CANDY, have been up to while we've been paying so much attention to other characters. Here's the general cast list if you'd like to get some ideas.
Here are the restrictions/requirements for guest strip submissions:
That's it, really! I'll mention this again next week, most likely. Again, the deadline will be MAY 20!
