Slowcity is currently working on a new project with Chris Wunderlich. It is a zine of sorts, titled Wunderlit, devoted to celebrating the low arts. The first one will launch soon. Oshawa has so many comic stores and tattoo artists as well as illustrationists and drawists Chris thought it seemed time to start documenting them. I agree.
Anyway thats what we are working on and then lo and behold the Whitby Public Library goes and does this - The first annual Whitby Comic Arts Festival taking place at the Whitby Public Library downtown 11am - 4 pm, Nov. 18 2017. There are vendors, cosplay, face painting, artists alley and panel discussions. I’m thinking the How Comic Book Fans Took Over the Word panel will be pretty apt for our zine, Wunderlit.
The Living Room Community Arts Studio, Geek Hard and the Hey Kids, Comics radio show folks will be present as will J. Torres (DC Comics), ‘Fearless’ Fred Kennedy of 102.1 The Edge and comic writer, artist Valentine De Landro, graphic novelist Ron Kasman and webcomic creator D.A. Bishop.
The event does look amazing and I can already see so many people I want to connect with in the line-up. Check the website and see you there.
Prior to all this there’s Drinks ’n Doodles at the Royal Oak Nov. 17 at 7p.m. Probably see you there too.
