Little Heart

The Toronto Comic Arts Festival takes place this coming weekend. It’s kind of a big year for me as I will be at the Koyama Press table promoting “The World of Gloria Badcock”, a comic that debuted last November. I’m also in a couple of new queer-esque anthologies that launch at the Festival. I created an 8 page docu-comic for “Little Heart”, a comic anthology for marriage equality.

Above is a 2 page excerpt from my submission titled “49th Parallel Universe”. Same sex marriage has been legal in Canada for some time, so I thought it might be interesting to present a Canadian point of view on the subject. I interviewed 3 queer couples who were in various stages of  union: common law, married and in the midst of divorce. Thanks to publishers Justin Skarhus and Raighne Hogan of 2d Cloud for thinking of me for this. It was a big challenge, something I hadn’t attempted before: comic journalism!  I’m so looking forward to getting my hands on a copy next weekend.
