Event poster by the wonderful Jordan Reg. Aelick!
Image description: Text at the top of the poster reads: mini Comics Readings! Glow lines emanate from the word mini. Two figures sit opposite each other, possibly in different rooms. A purple haired figure with a high ponytail, pointy ears, and freckles sits on a purple stool reading their very tiny comic in front of their laptop covered in stickers.Their audience, a fox-like red figure wearing a purple outfit, sits on their bed against a pillow beside a black cat as they sip their tea and watch their tablet, which depicts the panels from the presenter’s very tiny comic. The event date and link is included in the center of the poster, along with the artists’ names in black stylized writing. The TCAF logo and CCOL logo are in the bottom right corner. The bottom left corner depicts a 6 panel comic with: an ant in the first panel; a fish in the second; a goose in the third; a person with long red hair watching something on their phone and walking on the sidewalk in front of a brick wall in the fourth; a downtown Toronto building scape in the fifth, including the CN tower; and finally, a much zoomed out depiction of the earth, glowing, in a starry sky.
TCAF poster (Featured Image) by Cole Pauls: “Traditional indigenous storytelling can be expressed through song & dance. Transformation masks are regalia you’d wear performing sacred songs. This poster illustrates how comics can reveal a whole new world to the reader and how empowering it is to see authentic representation of your own culture on a page. Essentially, this is what it felt like to me the first time I read a Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas or Gord Hill book!!!” (poster description from Cole Paul’s Instagram)
