Hello all Tokyo creatives,
We will hold an opening party for this event on 14th November. DJs, drinks,etc.
A number of the artists will be in the country at the time so are expected to attend.
I am particularly (personally) excited that we will have original art from Charles Burns (!) Michael DeForge (Adventure Time, Lose, Ant Colony) Daniel Clowes (Eightball, and others) and Taiyo Matsumoto (Sunny, Tekkonkinkreet, and others).

The Art of TCAF: 2003-2016

@ Hakusen Gallery, Asagaya
Since 2003, The Toronto Comic Arts Festival has comissioned new and original pieces by Canadian and international cartoonists to serve as the official posters and promotional artwork of the Festival. For the first time, the complete range of posters and promotional artwork will be exhibited alongside a selection of the original drawings and pencil sketches for the material. The show will feature original TCAF promotional art by Canadians Marc Bell, Darwyn Cooke, Bryan Lee O’Malley, Seth, and Maurice Vellekoop, and international cartoonists Evan Dorkin, James Jean, and Taiyo Matsumoto.
In addition, this show will feature pieces from all participating TCAF in Tokyo artists, and this range of originals, prints, and photographs will be made available for sale at the gallery.
Our thanks to Hakusen Gallery, and Japan’s Black Hook Press, for helping to organize this gallery show.
