TCAF 2013 in photos

Last weekend I attended the 10th Toronto Comic Arts Festival and stayed in Toronto from Tuesday 7th May to Monday 13th.

The view overlooking Grange Park from our rented apartment near Queen Street West in Toronto. It didn’t stay this sunny all week sadly.

My view of the Los Bros Hernandez talk on Friday evening. Gilbert talked a lot. I got to meet Jaime the next morning when he was signing. It was shortly after 9am and there was no queue. I gushed at him, gave him my comics, shook his hand and ran away.

The Great Beast table.

This photo represents all the drinking Marc Ellerby and I did with friends over the week. Oddly this wasn’t taken in The Pilot Tavern where we spent waaay too much time. Big love to Clark Burscough, Becky Cloonan and Andy Belanger for hanging out, and Ivan Brandon too, what a cool dude.

Oh, this is just Marc and I with Paul Pope after we had lunch with him and Jimmy Aquino on the Monday. No biggie.

The last thing we did was co-host Jimmy’s podcast Comic News Insider which you can listen to here. There were many chuckles.

I wish I had more photos of the show in general, of the new people I met (Liz Prince, Joe Quinones, Ethan Rilly, Ross Campbell, Pranas T. Naujokaitis and Amy, etc.), the Drink ‘n’ Draw, the mad hockey fans (#GoLeafsGo! Oh no, they lost), our 3 hour wait for gorgeous steak at The Keg Mansion, ass-shaking dance offs at the Pilot and general hijinks. But I don’t. But I do have the memories.
