The Beguiling is thrilled to announce that on Thursday February 8th we’ll be welcoming Tommi Parrish in-store to launch their brand-new book from Fantagraphics, THE LIE AND HOW WE TOLD IT!
Expect a Q&A, a chance to get your book signed, and every other thing that usually happens at a book launch! We’re not reinventing the wheel here, we’re just excited to be able to launch the brand-new book from one of our favourite artists working in comics today.
If you’ve been in the store lately, you’ve probably noticed some commotion. Were those strange noises your imagination? Were we *really* getting into Halloween this year? Or maybe we were just listening to weird music?? (we do that)
Your senses have not been misleading you– we’re thrilled to say that The Beguiling is growing!
Over the course of the next year we will be expanding our College St location from a space a little bit smaller than our old location to one several times larger– same great taste, even more filling.
We’ll announce more concrete things as they approach, but our initial expansion should be open to the public very soon so stop on by and maybe you’ll get to see for yourself!
We’ve just added this absolutely breathtaking piece by Mahendra Singh to the art store! This is the original art for an Adventure Time licensed poster issued by the now-defunct Cartoon Network Collective, a parody of Albrecht Dürer’s “The Knight, Death and the Devil”. .One of the last pieces of Adventure Time original art that will ever be available, and absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Follow the link up top to our art store for more information!
We’re thrilled to now be offering new art in our online store from Dash Shaw and Jason Little!
Dash Shaw has supplied us with some gorgeous original background paintings from his animated film My Entire High School
Sinking into the Sea, and has combined them with acetate overlays reproducing the line art which he then been panted in gouache
paint! (Dash explains his process in a video you can view HERE)
The Beguiling is the only place to find original art from My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea, and we couldn’t be happier about that!
Jason Little has also added a number of originals from artist Jason Little to the store from his 2015 comic Borb! These pieces include pages from the books, covers to foreign editions, t-shirt designs and lots more! Jason’s detailed, intricate art manages to contain both heartbreak and humour in equal, black-hearted doses.
Go feast your eyes on these pieces and lots more over at our art site: store.beguilingoriginalart.com
The Beguiling is proud to team with international fashion retailer Uniqlo to present a unique selection of comics, graphic novels, and merchandise, featuring Toronto creators and works set in and around our fair city at their Toronto Flagship location at The Eaton Centre.
