I am gonna be at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend!
I will have copies of Relish and all my other books, plus art and prints and my big smilin’ face that will be happy to see you.
My Programming Stuff:
SATURDAY, MAY 11th
- 1:30 - 2:30pm Memoir Workshop w/ Lucy Knisley
Lucy Knisley, author of the New York Times Best-Selling graphic novel Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, demonstrates how you can turn your own life into comics.
- 2:45 - 3:45pm Writing Life
These four cartoonists tell the most personal kind of stories – stories from their own lives. This program explores what’s involved in memoir. How accurately can memory and representative artwork depict real life? And are there kinds of stories that cannot be told? Featuring Raina Telgemeier (Smile, Drama), Derf (My Friend Dahmer), Ulli Lust (Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life), and Lucy Knisley (Relish). Moderated by Robin Brenner.
SUNDAY, MAY 12th

Four creators enter, one creator leaves! Come watch four artists draw for their lives – and for your entertainment. Winners will feast on the souls of the losers (vegetarian option available). Featuring Phil McAndrew, Lucy Knisley, Jim Rugg, and Scott C.!
