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