MONTREAL: If you missed them at TCAF, the Caravan of Comics will be in your town tomorrow night for a screening of Graphic Novels! Melbourne!
This is a free event taking place at 185 Van Horne, second floor. The director as well as several of the featured cartoonists will be in attendance. There will be snacks (and a donation jar), but you are encouraged to bring your own consumables.
Me and five other Australian cartoonists (plus one Australian filmmaker to document the whole thing) are planning a perilous journey to North America in May, to bring our comics and charming accents to TCAF, plus Montreal, Seattle and hopefully elsewhere.
We already have a little funding but we need more! Otherwise it straight up can’t happen.
There are exclusive comics and prints, original artworks, and DVDs on offer to those of you who feel moved from deep within to help us (with money). Plus postcards from our trip, and even dinner with us, if food is a thing you enjoy!
And of course, if you are in North America, and you are going to the same places we’re going, you get to MEET ME, and I get to MEET YOU, and that will be tremendous.
PS. You can follow the Caravan on Twitter and Facebook, plus we have a WEBSITE, good gravy, where you can learn all about us and sigh and swoon and be unable to sleep, all agitated and tangled up in sheets.
PPS. Naturally, your enthusiastic reblogs are the very cream of my strawberry sponge cake. ♥
And please note: Sarah’s talk at the Emerging Writers Festival takes place 3pm THIS SUNDAY (May 27) at Melbourne Town Hall, and Squishface will have a table at Page Parlour in Fed Square THE SUNDAY AFTER (June 3).
Most of the Caravaners are home, so we’re having a little get-together over at Squishface this Sunday 20 May, from 2pm. Drop by and say hi and we’ll tell you all about our trip and show you 3D photos and go on about how sophisticated we are now we’ve been to Williamsburg.
