@ Nuvango, 639 Queen St. West, Second Floor
Free to Attend

Join OFF PANEL artists Sanya Anwar, Ronnie Ritchie, and Eric Kim in a spirited roundtable talk pitting the sequential against the static!

Drawing comics and illustration, despite a lot of transferable skills, can differ quite drastically. The artists will break down their processes for switching gears between being able to tell a story in multiples to a single image, and discuss their tools and tricks. Learn about the way these mediums have impacted on their career balance and trajectory.

Stay for a quick comics reading at the end!
Moderated by TCAF Projects Coordinator Julie Man.
