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.
