The cartoonist known as Boum will be traveling from Montreal for her first guest appearance at VanCAF! Her slice of life comics give a charming glimpse into the world of parenthood.
After ten years of studies and work in animation, Boum tried making comics and became completely addicted. She is mostly known for her Boumeries, a journal comic, and for A Small Revolution. Her comics are shortlisted for many prizes across the years, including the Bedelys, Expozine Awards, Joe Shuster Awards and Ignatz Awards. She is currently working on several comic projects at once, while also illustrating kids’ books.
Artist and writer Emily Carroll, whom you may know from her phenomenal horror comics (Into the Woods, When the Darkness Presses), will be a Featured Guest of VanCAF, to celebrate the release of Speak: The Graphic Novel. Emily, an Eisner Award-winning illustrator and author, is also the creator of many popular web comics including His Face All Red and Some Other Animal’s Meat.
Applications are reviewed by committee, they are not accepting on a first-come, first-served basis. As space in our venue is limited, preference will be given to comic creators over those in other creative industries. (If you’re an illustrator, be sure to check out the ArtBreakers Market)
VanCAF will be held on Saturday May 19 and Sunday May 20, 2018 at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre in Vancouver, B.C. Exhibitor space is available in full-table ($160) and half-table ($80) denominations.
