The Art Of SKIM, Now On Display At The Beguiling

Depression, love, sexual identity, crushes, manipulative peers–teen life in all its dramatic complexities is explored in the touching, literary graphic novel SKIM. The Beguiling proud to be exhibiting some of the process work from the creation of this great graphic novel by cousins Mariko and Jillian Tamaki, and published by Groundwood Press.

“Skim is an unusually strong graphic novel–rich in visuals and observations, and rewarding of repeated readings.”Publishers Weekly

This small exhibit follows the completion of the graphic novel a page at a time, from Mariko’s initial script through to Jillian’s thumbnails, pencils, inks, and finished art. This is a unique and insightful examination of collaboration and artistic process between two first-time graphic novelists, and best of all the art is lovely!

We encourage you all to come in and check it out, and to entice you we’d like to present to you some images from the exhibit.

Reminder: Two Great Comics Events in Toronto Tonight

Just a reminder about two events featuring fantastic Canadian comics and graphic novels in town this evening. Get out and celebrate!

INDUSTRY NIGHT: NEGATIVE BURN and COMIC EYE BOOK LAUNCH
Wednesday, March 26th, 7pm-10pm
The Victory Café, 581 Markham Street
(Just south of The Beguiling, near Bathurst and Bloor)
FREE

This month Comics Industry Night is proud to celebrate the launch of two great books featuring talented Canadian comic artists.

NEGATIVE BURN #17 features the short graphic novella “Growing Up With Comics” by Ron Kasman and R.G. Taylor. It tells the story of the comic book culture in Toronto in the 1950s, 60s and 70s then on into the present day. Touching on many Toronto comics landmarks, the story is like a walk down memory lane for long-time comics fans and an introduction to Toronto’s rich comics history for newcomers to the medium.

THE COMIC EYE is a new book-length anthology of comics… about comics! Published and Edited by Hamilton’s Mark Innes, the book features 50 autobiographical strips by 50 different creators, running the gamut from Fred Hembeck and Matt Feazel to Bernie Mierault and Nick Craine (and Mssrs. Kasman and Taylor make an appearance as well).

Many of the creators will be in attendance including Kasman, Taylor, and Innes, and the evening will include presentations from both works. It should be an entertaining evening! Hope to see you there!

SKIM BOOK LAUNCH
Gladstone Hotel Ballroom, 1214 Queen St W, Toronto
Wed, Mar 26; 7:30pm (doors 7pm)
FREE

When was the last time you watched a literary graphic novel come into being? At the launch of Skim, writer MARIKO TAMAKI and illustrator JILLIAN TAMAKI will discuss the evolution of their widely celebrated book with novelist JESSICA WESTHEAD and show slides chronicling the process. Also, EMILY POHL-WEARY will salute the Tamaki’s remarkable accomplishment — A This Is Not A Reading Series event presented by Pages Books & Magazines, Groundwood Books and EYE WEEKLY.

See you out there!
