TCAF is coming!

And it's going to be fan-freakin'-tastic! Maps are still being drawn up for where everyone's exhibiting but panels and programming has been announced and I'll be taking part in two live-drawing panels:

SATURDAY at "The Pilot Tavern" (22 Cumberland St) 
12:45 – 1:30 – Ed Mirvish Rollerball Derby Draw-Off
For generations the question has gone unanswered: who is better at drawing Toronto discounting legend Ed Mirvish — Australians or Canadians? Three uppity Aussies take on three staunch Canadians in a game-show ink battle for the ages. While they draw, host John Retallick will do his best to distract the contestants, quiz the audience and toss free books every which way. With Sarah Howell, David Blumenstein, Matt Taylor, Katie Shanahan, John Martz, and Brian Fukushima. Moderator: John Retallick

SUNDAY in The Toronto Reference Library (TCAF central)
1:45pm-2:30pm: Kids Comics Quickfire, The Sequel
Part drawing jam, part fast-paced game show! Volunteers from the audience are paired off with (or against) professional cartoonists in a series of fun-filled drawing challenges!  Featuring Jennifer and Matt Holm (Babymouse, Squish), and Andy Runton (Owly). Hosted by Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy).

Having people watch me draw has always made me super uncomfortable so of course I said yes to taking on live-drawing events. Come watch me draw (and squirm) and get over my fear of people in these fun filled creative panels!!

And just-because, here's a screen cap I took of an earlier version of the exhibitors list, I got a kick out of Alengrimrickshaw's glare making Seth nervous.
