In case you missed it on my instagram, I am so beyond excited to report that the SDCC official souvenir book 2017 published my article! A heartfelt piece about my Dad and I, it was created in celebration of the 25th anniversary of one of my all time favourite tv shows - 'Batman, The Animated Series'. And what's more, I was able to get it signed by the dark knight himself! Kevin Conroy - voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne in the show - very graciously signed a copy for both myself, and for my Dad.
I was not aware before heading to Comic Con that they had published my work, so when I opened up my copy in the restaurant before dinner that night I literally screamed with delight. It was such a lovely surprise, and really kicked off the weekend right. My friend Ali (another cool illustrator, check her out on her website and on tumblr. Though she spends most, if not all of her time on Twitter) also got her illustration published for the Batgirl feature, so we were both mega stoked. We did have a hilarious conversation about the possibility of only one of us getting published, and even practiced our 'I'm so happy for you, but I'm dying on the inside' faces. Luckily neither one of us had to use them.
If you weren't lucky enough to go to the event itself and pick up a copy of the book, fear not! I scanned it, so you can click this link to read the article right here from the comfort of your very own livingroom/office/classroom/toilet/whatever. I'm afraid I couldn't scan the entire book though, but if you're ever in the neighbourhood I might be convinced to let you borrow one of the 12 copies I own...maybe.
Friday 3rd March - Sunday 5th March 2017
The Arts Council of New Westminster in partnership with Royal City Farmers Market are hosting a group exhibition during the 2017 British Columbia Association of Farmers Markets. I'll be exhibiting some collages from my latest collection, "At the Market" alongside some amazing and talented local artists.
Come down to the River Market in New Westminster from 3rd - 5th March to see an array of delicious, food-themed art, and support local producers at the farmer's market. Lots to see, try and buy!
