My friend Chris is helping organize a fantastic fundraiser next month, Toronto Draws Tintin. Sponsored by The Beguiling Books & Art, Steamwhistle Brewery, and the French Consulate in Toronto, the event will feature a month-long exhibit of artwork by local Toronto creators, each piece paying tribute to the classic adventurer Tintin and his creator, Herge.
The gallery opening is on Wednesday November 2nd, from 7pm-10pm; the exhibit will close on Sunday, November 27th from 7 pm – 11pm with a Silent Auction and Tintin discussion featuring Stanislas, illustrator of the upcoming biography The Adventures of Herge. Funds raised by the exhibit and auction will go to support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. If you happen to be in Toronto during November, it’s definitely going to be an exhibit worth checking out!
There’s still time to get into the show if you’re a professional illustrator or comics creator who lives in (or has lived in) Toronto – submissions will be accepted until October 31, and this post includes details on how to get the submission guidelines (right at the bottom).
