Hey guys!! This year’s Toronto Tea Festival is around the corner! Please come shop for tea and tea accessories, enjoy tea tastings, tea ceremonies, lectures, and the newly added tea art gallery! I’ll be showcasing a few original pieces of tea-related art, including two pieces from my most recent illustration series: “Tea from Around the World”!
Early bird ticket price is only available til January 20.
Hope to see you there!
Sorry for missing this week’s comic update (Dec. 18th), but life’s been pretty hectic lately…which has made me decide to take my Christmas break and resume the comic in the new year. Stay tuned!
Until then, I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday and best wishes for 2014!!
Thank you very much for reading!!
It’s back! Comic Creators for Freedom (formerly Comic Creators Alliance) is once again raising funds for a great cause! I’m participating along with other amazing comic artists from across the world!
CCF members have united to spread awareness and raise funds to end the horror of human trafficking. Over 100 creators have donated an image of one of their comic characters that will be combined together to create a single picture. This picture will be available for computer download with donation to their fundraising drive. Donations will be accepted from December 2nd through December 14th.
Please visit http://donate.love146.org/events/comic-creators-for-freedom/e28365 to donate and get this once in a lifetime image.
Lora Innes (The Dreamer) organized the endeavor back in 2010 after being particularly moved at a seminar on the issue. Innes states “There are currently 27 million enslaved people worldwide- more than double the number of enslaved Africans during the trans-Atlantic slave trade. UNICEF estimates that 1.2 million children every year are sold into slavery, most of it sexual. The US Department of Justice estimates 16,000 victims of human trafficking are brought into the United States every year. With this many people being affected I just couldn’t sit there and not do something.”
100% of donations will be given to Love 146 (www.love146.org). The image will be available at screen resolution for digital wallpaper use only. To see a list of artists participating and to learn more about what you can do to end human trafficking visit http://comiccreatorsforfreedom.com/.
Here’s a small preview of the wallpaper. This year’s theme is Awkward School Photos:
Please help spread the word! Thanks again for reading!
I’ve recently been confirmed to exhibit at the Toronto Indie Arts Market on December 14th; the last show to wrap up my con season this year.
Unlike the The Toronto Indie Arts Market that took place back in April, this one is catering exclusively to literature, comics and small press. Please come support independent artists and do your Christmas shopping!
Show admission is $5, with partial proceeds going to Parkdale Project Read.
I’ll be sharing a table with my lovely friend Julie Faulkner, creator of Promises Promises.
Hope to see you there!
I just wanted to share with you this funny fanart I got today from Julie Faulkner, creator of the cute and funny Promises Promises comic!
I also got this cool fanart from Alfonso Espinos, founder of Studiocomix!
I’ll be adding these drawings to the fanart gallery.
Thanks, Julie and Alfonso!
