David B. & Igort Beguile Toronto!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under IgorteventsDavid B 10 Nov 2008 8:08 PM

The Beguiling presents…

AN EVENING WITH DAVID B. & IGORT

The internationally acclaimed graphic novelists.

Saturday November 15th, 7PM-9PM (doors at 6:30)
At Rocco’s Plum Tomato, Plum Room
585 Bloor Street West, at Markham Street

FREE TO ATTEND

Presented in association with The Italian Cultural Institute,
The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States,
and the French Consulate of Toronto.

TORONTO, Ontario – The Beguiling is proud to present an exclusive engagement with two of the most acclaimed graphic novelists in the world, right here in Toronto! David B., author of the award-winning graphic memoir Epileptic, and Igort, author of the new series Baobab and the publisher of the international Ignatz graphic novel line, will visit Toronto on the evening of Saturday, November 15th, 2008, in support of their new projects.

“We’re very fortunate to have two graphic novelists from overseas come through Toronto,” says Peter Birkemoe, owner of The Beguiling. “Igort’s graphic novels and his work with the Ignatz line are changing the face of comics publishing world-wide… Ignatz is comics’ most innovative publishing model, and one of its most accessible. And David B. is just a phenomenal talent, and his Epileptic is being taught at the University of Toronto this year.”

An Evening with David B. and Igort will include a multimedia presentation of the authors’ works, and an on-stage discussion and a question and answer session. Following the presentation the authors will be available to sign their books.

A wide selection of work from both David B. and Igort will be available for sale at the event courtesy of The Beguiling. The evening will also see the official English-language debut of David B.’s newest book, Nocturnal Conspiracies, from NBM Publishing.

Gene Deitch in San Francisco Nov. 20
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Gene Deitchevents 10 Nov 2008 7:16 PM

  

A very special event for you lucky Northern Californians: 

An evening with Gene Deitch

Thursday, November 20, 8 PM
San Francisco State University, Fine Arts Building's Coppola Theater (room 101), free, public invited

Gene Deitch will be visiting from Prague as the San Francisco International Animation Festival has invited him to the States for this retrospective program.

Gene says, “I will play a few films in two versions, with my original soundtrack and then substitute tracks imposed by the producers for weird and illogical reasons... As an example of what we who are paid to make films often have to put up with. It should be very revealing, with the stories behind the changes. These examples have never been shown publicly before!”

This program is presented by SF State's Animation Society and ASIFA-SF, a chapter of ASIFA, the International Animation Association.

Maakies fans, let us unite to make Tony Millionaire rich! We all know that comics don't pay well but cartoons do: Tell everyone to watch the premiere of the official Drinky Crow Show series on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming. It debuts in just two weeks, so open a beer and hit those message boards!

To make it easier for you, here are some ad banner thingies to post around. Tony will appreciate it, I assure you.

By the way, I suspect that 12:15 am on Sunday actually means Saturday night. Sunday at 12:15 means Sunday night. Monday morning if you prefer.
