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.
