TCAF Roundup

I had a fantastic weekend at The Toronto Comic Arts Festival, truly the most diverse and talented line-up of cartoonists at any convention in North America.

I especially enjoyed spending the weekend with fellow Top-Shelfer Matt Kindt who stayed at my place. Matt and have so much in common, and get along so well that and I only wish we lived in the same city. We had fun sketching and drawing together. Here are two of the characters from my upcoming Vertigo series Sweet Tooth. The first is pencilled by Matt and inked by me. The second was pencilled by me and inked by Matt. The results are odd, kind of a mishmash of our styles, but they were lot of fun to do. Check out Matt's blog to see me doing his characters and a few of my drawing that he painted over.
