1st Annual Camosun College Comics Conference - April 7th

 I'll be a guest at the 1st annual Camosun College Comics Conference here in Victoria held in conjunction with the Comics and Graphic Novels course run by Canadian comics legend Ken Steacy. Some of the other guests and speakers will include Paul Chadwick (Concrete), Sam Logan (of Sam & Fuzzy fame), Gareth Gaudin (Perogy Cat, and Legends Comics) and many more. The event is free and open to the public, so read the press release below for more info, and I hope to see you there!

"CAMOSUN COLLEGE COMICS CONFERENCE is a celebration of the artistic and literary impact of comics and graphic novels created locally, nationally, and internationally. The event is open to the public, free of charge, to view the students' works, hear and see the process of visual storytelling, and discuss the medium with the creators, teachers, publishers, and other fans. It will take place on Sunday, April 7th from 11am until 6pm, on the third floor of the historic Young Building, located on Camosun's Lansdowne campus."

"Our sixteen students will be in attendance in an “artists alley” display of their publications and original artwork. There will also be displays by established local creators Gareth Gaudin, Janine Johnston, Nelson Dewey, Ash Vickers, Glen Mullaly, Simon Roy, and Glen & Kay Lovett, as well as presentations by guest speakers Paul Chadwick (Concrete), Anne Marie Fleming (The Magical Life of Long Tak Sam), Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas (Haida Manga), and Sam Logan (Sam & Fuzzy) - below are links to their work, which I hope you will explore:

Coming Soon to a Galaxy Near You...

Great news from the way-back machine department... I recently found out that a Dark Horse Comics collection of rare Star Wars comics is coming out in late May that features reprints of the Star Wars Kids magazine serialized comics that I co-illustrated with Ken Steacy way back in the late 1990s (we both did pencils, inks and lettering). So cool to see it in the same volume as the late 1970s Pizzazz Star Wars comics I had as a kid!
I'll have more info on this as the release date nears. In the meantime click on the cover above for more info!
