Sunday November 27th

 

Toronto cartoonist and illustrators took their turns at drawing the iconic boy reporter Tintin, showing off their interpretation of a classic as part of Toronto Draws Tintin. These efforts have been on display at the Steamwhistle Brewery for the past month but Sunday sees the show come to a close with a party and silent auction with proceeds going to the Canadian Comic League Legal Defense Fund. Presented by the Beguiling participating artists included Steve Wolfhard, Britt Wilson, Brian Fukushima, Chester Brown, Zach Worton, and Michael DeForge just to name a few.

In attendance will be French cartoonist Stanislas for the English-language launch of the graphic novel biography of Tintin’s creator Hergé, The Adventures of Hergé which has been published by Montréal’s Draw & Quarterly. Copies are available at the Beguiling now, but stop by after 7PM for this free event and maybe get your copy signed by the man himself.

About Yuli Scheidt

Yuli was born at the exact moment in 1986 when the Challenger Space Shuttle exploded and rained down on the ocean. As a child she believed this meant she was destined for greatness in the realm of space travel and radioastronomy. Nothing remotely as awesome as that has happened so far. Instead Yuli, at the age of 18, relocated from Calgary to Ottawa where she studied photography, life sciences and graphic design before moving to Toronto. [More by Yuli]
