This is a self portrait I drew for the back of the Lemon Inc. book. It’s a lot harder to draw myself than I would have thought it would be. The last time I did a finished self portrait was back in 2008, I think, and I’ve been meaning to do a better one for a while.
I already posted the illustration I did for the cover of Lemon Inc. Volume 1 but here is the final cover with the logo and volume number in place. Oh yeah, and apparently the first volume is going to be called “Freshly Sqeezed”.
The Toronto Comic Arts Festival was last week but I’m only getting around to doing my post con blog post now. If you aren’t familiar with TCAF and why it’s the most awesome comics show I’ve ever been to you can find my thoughts on last year’s show here.
After brunch at Cora’s (an awesome Canadian breakfast restaurant) we headed down to the Toronto Reference Library where the show has been held since 2009 when I first attended it. Every year TCAF just gets bigger and better than the previous year. There were over three hundred cartoonists in attendance this year. There were so many awesome cartoonists and panels at this show that I didn’t have time to see everything that I might have liked to. The attendance was bigger than ever before too. It’s been crowded the previous two years I’ve gone but nothing like it was this year.
