rookie masquerade


Cool news! Tavi is coming to Toronto for a Rookie Yearbook One launch and costume party at Magic Pony on October 27. Facebook event information here (important details copied below as well).


I got a copy of the book from Drawn & Quarterly (thank you!) and I just love it! I remember talking to Sonja as she was getting ready to prepare the artwork for it, and it is so amazing to see it in print. What a beautiful book. It has so many cats in it.

Teens and young people! I am almost jealous of you! What an amazing resource at your disposal. Its huge!


Sonja’s piece about Heart is so good. It’s online but it really shines in print.

  6. I'm so excited for this! Are you going to wear a costume!?
    Tavi just amazes me, and I'm proud to take credit for introducing Sonja to Tavi's blog years ago. Tavi seemed like such a mini Sonja in so many ways, and it's so exciting to see their collaboration blossom!

    1. So happy you're going! And I don't know! I am SO BAD at costumes. I have a cat mask I can throw on, haha.

      That's amazing! And yeah, I can totally see that. It's been pretty fascinating to watch from this end! Match made in heaven.
