Megan Kelso at Vermillion Gallery

Last Fall, Megan Kelso gave a presentation at Seattle's Richard Hugo House. As she describes it, "It's about a lot of stuff -- reading Moby Dick, my midlife crisis, financial woe and the creative process."

If you missed it, or if you loved it so much you want to see it again, you'll have your chance this coming Wednesday, May 16th as part of a local poetry series called "Breadline" hosted at Vermillion Gallery [ 1508 11th Ave, Seattle ]. This free, all-ages event kicks off at 7:00 PM!

12 Beers of the Apocalypse: Ruin

Get "ruined" ...and on a Monday night, no less!

It's time for another launch in our 12 Beers of the Apocalypse series, a collaboration with our friends at the Elysian Brewing Company. Join us on Monday, May 21st, and try "Ruin," a Rosemary Agave IPA, available on draft, and in exclusive 22 oz. bottles with labels featuring the artwork of the great Charles Burns from his weirdly apocalyptic Black Hole series.

The official tapping begins at 6:00 PM, followed by a survival demo by Bryan at 7:30 PM, with "apocalyptic amusements" until 9:00 PM. Come by and collect the next stamp in your Apocalypse Beer Survival Guide. Fill your book with survival item stamps at our Apocalypse events throughout the year for an outstanding experience at our final End of the World Celebration on 12.20.12! 

So, come survive the rapture with us at Elysian Brewing Company, located at 1221 E. Pike Street in Seattle! As always: the end is BEER!

SATURDAY, MAY 5th

10:00–11:00 AM // International Perspectives
Comics creators from around the world come together in this panel to showcase the similarity and differences of their approaches to the comics medium. With Jose-Louis Bocquet, Gabriella Giandelli, Tom Gauld, Jason, Hugues Micol, and Olivier Schrauwen. Moderator: Caitlin McGurk. (High Park Ballroom, located in the The Marriott Bloor Yorkville.)

3:15–5:00 PM // The Adventure Time Mega-Panel!
Who doesn’t love adventures?  TCAF presents: Adventure Time creators doing what they do best: making crazy-delightful comics about the series they work on.  Don’t miss this fun-filled live drawing session, accompanied by Q&A and general discussion. With Pendleton Ward, Ryan North, Bob Flynn, Andy Ristiano, Michael DeForge, Steve Wolfhard, and Jesse Moynihan. (High Park Ballroom, located in the The Marriott Bloor Yorkville.) 

SUNDAY, MAY 6th

11:30 AM– 1:00 PM // Thoughts on Panel Layout
This panel looks at the nitty gritty of layouts around the world—where and how scene breaks happen (middle of page, end of page, fade out, formulas for transition), panel shapes and page structures (even grids, angled, borderless), “camera” angles and staging, frequency of certain types of panels (all-text, scenery only, etc), trying to figure out patterns that would be useful to clarify for creators. We’ll talk about individual creators as interesting or notable examples, and look at a big spread of works from every market. With Bryan Lee O’Malley, Jesse Moynihan, Kim Hoang, Aaron Diaz, Emily Carroll, and Francis Manapul. Moderator: Angie Wang (1st Floor: Learning Center 1)


The Toronto Reference Library is located at 789 Yonge Street. The closest major intersection is Yonge & Bloor. The closest subway station is Yonge/Bloor Station.

Marketing Mix Master Mike Baehr and I will take that stuff to Canada. See you there!
