Last November I was lucky enough to take part in the TCAF expedition to Japan and brought my books to the Kaigai Manga Festa海外マンガフェスタ(Tokyo International Comics Festival).The Toronto Comics Art Festival (TCAF) is an annual event held at the Bloor St. Reference Library in downtown T.O. The exhibition features an amazing assortment of independent alternative comic book creators from around the world. The idea is to showcase people working outside the standard comic book genres and conventions such as superheroes in order to explore social, political & personal issues such as class, gender, poetry and biographical issues. In addition to the Toronto event TCAF often travels with the artists to do international expos including events in Tokyo.

It was an amazing experience you can see more pics and read about the TCAF trip here!
