Star tunnel book demonstration at Word Festival

I gave a star tunnel book demonstration at Word Festival in Vancouver.

Starbook with cherry blossom haiku

I created this starbook featuring winners from the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Haiku Invitational winners.

Each card was designed by VCBF with the purpose of promoting the winners. I downloaded the cards from the @OfficialVCBF twitter page.

This starbook will be donated to Haiku Canada to be auctioned during the annual conference this week-end.

Word Vancouver

I presented a bookmaking workshop at Word Vancouver between 3-4pm at the table of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild.

Participants decorated their book using the logo of the festival.  The book that says “Family Fun” really sums up the experience at this wonderfully literary festival.

If you missed the workshop, check out my tutorial.

VanCAF

I had a table at the Vancouver Comics Arts Festival (VanCAF) at the Roundhouse this week-end (May 23-24) to promote Old Pond Comics.

It was my first time at VanCAF as a vendor. It’s a curated show (meaning they carefully review each submissions and decide who gets to go in) so I was super happy to be accepted as a fellow cartoonist.

Many people recognized the word “Haiku” from something they’ve learned in school, years ago and stopped by to chat and buy some haiku-comics.

A few people recognized my comic strips from the monthly publication The Bulletin: a journal of Japanese Canadian Community, history + culture

Thanks to everybody who stopped by the table! I hope you will try to write haiku.
