Back from Ontario and TCAF, which was all a great time. Good to see the family, good to see all the comic people at the show. Nice to have some people come by specifically to pick up True Loves 3!
While I think of it, I am still updating the colour online version. New one up today. Oh and while I’m thinking of it, this Big Planet Comics podcast has a nice discussion of Farm School in around the 20 minute mark.
I am still finishing up comics about my Ontario trip, but here is a quick little photo trip through it. True Loves 3 did arrive in time for TCAF which was a relief.
Manien booked me a room at Victoria’s Mansion House and it was cute. My room was… cozy. And it was in the basement! But I was just sleeping there between selling comics and whooping it up with comics people, so it was fine!
I met up with former Vancouverite and old Crown Commission comrade Ben Woo for a bite on Friday night. Good to see him and hear about all the crazy nerd studies his doing with his PHD in nerdic matters. He was also nice enough to help me carry boxes to the reference library in the pouring rain.
We eventually got to the Pilot for the opening party and had a table with various guests, including Inkstud Robin.
And Tyler J Hutchinson who told us how his We Draw Comics site is going.
My TCAF table was upstairs again which was nice. Look at those True Loveses! The place was hopping. I had lovely neighbours Blue and Andy.
After the show on Sunday I met up with old Toronto pals, Dave and Dawn for a bite and a beer. Dave also stopped off at the Green Room with me for another as I was on my way to the TCAF closing party. The Green Room just may be a location in an upcoming story I want to do.
The closing party was a blast. Managed to talk to a bunch of people and eventually found Dave Lapp, Doug Wright Award winner Nina Bunjevac and Jordan to hang out. Dancing ensued and eventually Nina, Salgood Sam and I were the only ones left dancing. As we left I took a picture and then a second later TCAF organizers Chris and Miles were leaving too, so they got in for a pic too.
