Run from your houses! TCAF is coming!!!

Yep, TCAF (the Toronto Comic Arts Festival) is happening this weekend (Saturday May 11 9-5 and Sunday May 12 11-5) at the Toronto Reference Library. Already happening, in fact! 

I’m in a whirlwind of prep and programming (I’m speaking on a panel at TCAF Librarian & Educators Day this afternoon on non-fiction comics!), so here’s just a quick peek of what I’ll have at the fest:

All me loot (clockwise from left): wordless linocut novel Back + Forth, stack of various zines and prints, 24 hour comic book day comic made in one week Good Morning!, my *NEW* mini comic Homeache, and wordless relief print erotic story anthology Boom Boom Boom

ImageHomeache, silkscreen cover on Stonehenge, 24 pages, 4.25 x 5.5″

ImageHomeache is a memorial to an old Toronto apartment and the ways that a place comes to shape us as we fill it with experience. 

Cut.Ink.Press Show and B+F Review

I’m back from Alaskaland and ready to share some news with you!

For the month of August, I will have some prints from my books on display as part of an excellent printmaking exhibition called Cut.Ink.Press. There’s a great group of artists involved so if you’re in Toronto, make sure to check it out. The show will be at Jetfuel Coffee, 519 Parliament St, from August 2nd to 31st. The opening is tomorrow, August 2nd, at 9pm. Come out for a beer or a snack or just to eyeball some fine prints (if the first two are not motivation enough). I will also have some copies of Back + Forth and Boom Boom Boom available for sale during the exhibition.

In other news, Kate from the Porcupine’s Quill did a wonderful review of Back + Forth and my pal Megan’s book Wanderlust on the PQL blog. I really enjoyed reading her interpretation and I hope you will too! Leave a comment on her post and you have a chance to win a copy of one of the books! Sweet!
