October 26: Illustrator Historian Lief Peng at The Nook

Lief Peng in Conversation
Wednesday, October 26th, 2011 – 7 – 9pm
The Nook Collective, 156 Augusta Avenue, Toronto
$40.00. Limited Seating.

Join esteemed illustrator, storyboard & concept artist, teacher, and creator of the widely-read blog, Today’s Inspiration, Lief Peng for an informative and entertaining presentation on modern illustration.

Peng’s presentation will focus on illustration as a cyclical process that is repeating itself again in our time. His talk will focus on mid 20th century illustrators who he has written about over the last six years. He’ll share stories and anecdotes—some from his extensive research but also first-hand accounts of personal interviews he’s conducted with many Canadian and American illustrators.

The evening is hosted by the Nook Collective, a group of award–winning illustrators and educators based in Kensignton Market. You can learn more about Lief Peng and Nook at their website, nookcollective.com.

Thanks to Drawn.ca for the heads up on this sure-to-be-wonderful event.
