I will be spending TWO GLORIOUS DAYS in a HOTEL in Toronto this coming weekend when I visit the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. (my Mother’s Day present 🙂 )
I will also be appearing on a panel on Saturday afternoon with my fellow newspaper comic strip friends, Rina Piccolo, Paul Gilligan, Jonathan Mahood and Terri Libenson…AND I’m looking forward to meeting Dana Simpson for the first time. We’ll be discussing “Newspaper Comics in a Digital World”. The rest of the time I’ll be browsing all the tables of the many talented cartoonists at TCAF and attending as many other cartoon panels as I possibly can. HERE ARE ALL THE DETAILS! …
