Celebrating Graphic Novels

Virtual Event

Age / Grade 6-8 / Grades 1-3

The rewarding thing about cartooning is that it’s completely yours… you can express your ideas any time you like! I started creating comics the moment I discovered they existed, and I still create with the same childhood joy. I’ll take you through my cartooning journey, and show some of the techniques that help me produce the comics strips and graphic novels I make today. Plus I’ll reveal a sneak peek at the upcoming Pluto Rocket book 2!

Paul Gilligan writes and draws the syndicated comic strip Pooch Cafe, which runs in over 250 newspapers around the world! You may recognize him as the author-illustrator of King of the Mole People, and its sequel, Rise of the Slugs. Paul is based in Toronto, Ontario.

Moderated by Kevin Sylvester. Kevin Sylvester writes and illustrates everything from picture books to murder mysteries and science fiction to books on sports and financial literacy. A Telling Tales fan-favourite, Kevin will be on board to field your questions for all of our lovely creators and maybe ask a few of his own!
