Event image description: Centered in the image, two people sit high up in a tree beneath the green tree canopy. White and pink-toned seagulls fly around and above them, one large seagull is in the foreground of the image, and they all fly towards the sky to the upper left of the figures. One of the figures is a light-skinned young person with long brown hair and wears colourful striped pants and a purple t-shirt; legs dangling from a comfy tree branch, they face the viewer and are speaking to the other figure who sits in the tree beside them in a nearby branch, slightly above. The other figure is a Black young person with short black hair wearing a white t-shirt and blue shorts; with their back to the viewer, the second figure sits nestled between two large branches. White text to the top right of the poster overlays part of the image and reads: Old Growth Press and the Canada Comics Open Library present Saul Freedman-Lawson & Wang Xulin.
