Lately I have been very bad at keeping my various online sites up-to-date with news and events and whatnot. Going to rectify that now, succinctly.
- Unfortunately I will not be at ThoughtBubble festival this year, as originally planned. I’m sorry!
- This One Summer was nominated for a Governor General’s Award, a Canadian literary prize. We have been split up into “text and illustration” categories again, which caused some consternation the last time with Skim. I am honoured to be nominated, nevertheless. Fun fact: 3 of the 4 nominated illustrators are ACAD grads.
- The Adventure Time episode that I boarded with Jesse Moynihan, Astral Plane, was teased at NYCC! Not sure when it airs.
Above, a selection of some of the wares I’ll be peddling at table #J5, which I’m sharing with Youth In Decline's Ryan Sands and Jane Cho. Random bibs and bobs, plus a NEW SMMA MINI (aka the LAST SMMA MINI ever).
I’m on one panel. Sunday, 12:30, White Flint Auditorium.
Stories of Girlhood: What is the difference between writing about girlhood and writing for young girls? What can we generalize about the experience of girlhood in Western culture? And how do we express that in words and images? Moderator Ellen Lindner (The Black Feather Falls) will consider these questions and more with artists Jillian Tamaki (Skim, This One Summer), Aisha Franz (Earthling), and Melissa Mendes (Freddy Stories, Lou).
