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.

The Making of my Haiku Life video

I’m working on my Haiku Life video: a short animation film about the childhood of Kaeru the haiku apprentice from my Old Pond Comics. Check out the cute tadpole!

The final video will be unveiled on April 17 (National Haiku Day) on The Haiku Foundation website.
