Beguiling Art Store 2.0

8404

Hello! We’re quietly relaunching our Original Art Store today. We’ve got a new, fully-functioning e-commerce site, and the import of the items from the previous art store has just been completed, and double-checked.

The Beguiling Original Art Store is where we sell original comics pages and illustrations by a curated selection of great artists, including Lisa Hanawalt, Sammy Harkham, Gabriel Ba & Fabio Moon, Jeffrey Brown, Vanessa Davis, and many, many more!

The new URL is http://store.beguilingoriginalart.com/index.php.

It ain’t pretty, and there might still be a few kinks to work out, but you can now a) register for an account, b) add pieces of art to your cart, and c) buy them, so it’s miles ahead of our previous system. :)

We’ll be keeping you abreast of updates, both to the site and available art, over the next few months. As always, hit up mail@beguiling.com with art store questions and comments.

IMG_4286

Hey there! Maybe you haven’t been following TCAF on twitter or instagram (@torontocomics), so maybe you don’t know that the TCAF Shop @ Toronto Reference Library is awesome, and getting new and unique product in every day? Here’s a little bit of info to catch you up!

The Basics

The #TCAFshop is located at 789 Yonge Street, inside Toronto Reference Library. You can enter from Yonge Street, or from the library, and it’s open the same hours as the library!

Holiday Hours

The TCAFshop @ TPL currently keeps the same hours as Toronto Reference Library. As such, it will observe all of the holiday closures that Toronto Public Library is undergoing.

The TCAFshop will be open from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 24 and closed on Thursday, December 25, Friday, December 26 and Sunday, December 28. It will be open as usual on Saturday, December 27, 9:00am-5:00pm. It will be open 9:00am-1:00pm on New Year’s Eve, and closed on New Year’s Day.

The TCAFshop has a tonnnn of cool merch in stock right now, making great gifts or stocking stuffers! Tintin and Peanuts you  may have already known about, but Monday saw the arrival of cool/cute Moomin and Studio Ghibli (Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service) material!

IMG_4516 IMG_4515

But that’s not all! The TCAF shop is also carrying a well-curated selection of magazines! Two very important issues this month too, with Taddle Creek featuring a new story by Michel Rabagliati (Paul Joins The Scouts) and The Walrus featuring the beginning of a new serial by Seth (Palookaville)!

The TCAFshop also carries a great selection of stationary, and literary-themed totes and shirts! Just a few of the many items in stock now displayed above, and new material coming in all the time!

Oh, and of course they carry graphic novels and books too, but since you’re already visiting The Beguiling, you’re probably very well-served on that front. Still, feel free to come by and check that out too. ;)

Alright! That’s it for now! Thanks for reading!

New IN-STOCK: SOLO Book One and Recidivist IV

solobookone-w640h640Hot, new, self-published books, *just* in time for the holiday shopping season!
First up is Hope Larson’s brand-new project SOLO: Book One. Telling the tale of a musician figuring out her life after her divorce, this is Larson’s first long-form comic that she has written and drawn herself since 2010’s MercurySOLO: Book One is a perfect-bound book containing the first 94 pages of the story. Check it out!
SallyCoverNext is the latest from Zak Sally, Recidivist IV. This 56 page book is the total package, as it also comes with a CD with 21 minutes of drone music composed by Sally!
Recidivist IV is described as a difficult and involved work, so if you like your comics to be a bit of a challenge, then this is definitely for you. In Sally’s own words, “This book is NOT for everyone. If you are looking for a passive, easy reading experience, this is not it!” Sounds fun!
Both of these books can be found upstairs and downstairs at the The Beguiling, or one of our helpful staff can help you find it. Come in and grip ‘em!
