Today’s Comic…

In light of the recent horrific event in Florida, involving a toddler and an alligator, I have pulled today’s comic from GoComics.

As many of you know, the comics are drawn and loaded many weeks before they are published. Sometimes, world events and comic plots sync and what was supposed to be funny/innocent suddenly isn’t.

Sorry, if the comic upset anyone. It certainly was not my intention and has been replaced.

Thanks

Toronto Comic Arts Festival!


For those of you in Toronto this weekend, I will be at TCAF on Saturday May, 14th.

I’m part of the panel discussion ‘Newspaper Comics In A Digital World’ that takes place @1:30pm in the Marriott’s Forest Hill Ballroom (90 Bloor St. East)

Here’s the official description below…

1:30 – 2:30 — Newspaper Comics in a Digital World

How are newspaper comic strips evolving in a digital world? Is print really dead? Join six internationally syndicated comic strip artists (Paul Gilligan, Pooche Cafe, Sandra Bell-Lundy, Between Friends, Jonathan Mahood, Bleeker The Rechargeable Dog, Terri Libenson, Pajama Diaries, Dana Simpson, Phoebe and Her Unicorn, and Rina Piccolo, Tina’s Groove) as they discuss new opportunities for their strips, the remodeling of syndication as a business, and the role of social media for newspaper comics.
I’m on with a great lineup of cartoonists, so it should be fun! Hope to see you there!
