I will be presenting all of my comics, comix, minis, books and novelties at this years 2nd Annual Prairie Comics Festival May 6th - 7th, 2017. It's FREE to attend and is in a very nice venue for the second time at the Millenial Library in downtown Winnipeg. The only thing different is that it runs for two days this year.
The following weekend is TCAF in Toronto which I will be going to to mill about and trade comics!
Here below are two of my recent Acid Man Society books, No.40, Man Macine unfolds to a geo-abstract comic on one side of a sheet with many words about evolution and consciousness on the other side. No.41, ONA has a more traditional comic panel layout with a fun story about an young eye leaving home.
MY animated short film Traffiiik will be showing at this years Melbourne International Animation Festival (MIAF) in Australia June 18-25. Monica Lowe, Distribution Director at the Winnipeg Film Group was invited to curate and present a program of shorts from the Winnipeg Film Group catalogue.
