Not much, other than my usual appearance at the Fan Expo convention next weekend. You can find out more about it here... http://www.hobbystar.com/ Just click on the Fan Expo logo when you get there.

Sadly, it looks like I will end up missing Mid-Ohio-Con this year because of a scheduling problem. Hopefully, I will not miss it next year as well but, apparently, the New York Comic Con has moved its date to early October. I don't know if there will be a conflict.

No other shows planned yet. My last con was New York in February and my last signing was in Jamestown, NY on FCBD in May. 2009 has been fairly light for me. I'm hoping to make a few more appearences in 2010.

My next scheduled appearance will be at Paradise Comics in Toronto on November 14, the same week as the release of the first issue of Dark X-Men.

Nothing about this is on the site yet but you can find Paradise Comics here.... http://www.paradisecomics.com/site/main.html

This just in. I will be appearing at the one day Toronto ComiCon Fall Convention put on by Hobbystar, the same guys that handle the Fan Expo in the summer.

It's on November 22 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center on Front st.

The site is down for some reason so I can't link it at this time but they do have a Facebook page... http://www.facebook.com/reqs.php#/ev...2494555&ref=mf

Thanks

Nope. I haven't attended San Diego since 2006 and really don't have any plans to attend again in the near future. It's just become too big of a hassle and too damn expensive, especially after losing my table in Artists Alley.

I'm so sorry. I forgot to get back to this. I'm afraid I will not be at the Toronto show this weekend. However, I will be in Toronto for the Wizard Con in March.

Afraid not. Afer the Wizard Con in Toronto http://www.wizardworld.com/show-info-toronto.html I will be attending the con in Calgary in April http://www.calgaryexpo.com/

Of course, I will be in Toronto again for the Comic Expo this summer.

I don't have any plans for any cons outside of Canada yet. However, I am hoping to have time to get to both Mid-Ohio-Con this year (I believe it's their 30th anniversary) as well as the New York Con again this fall. I'd love to get to Philly. I haven't been there in years but I don't think I can make it. I'll see what I can do with Baltimore as well but I wouldn't have high hopes. I am busy, busy, busy!

Which is a good thing.

Default Leonard Kirk Teaches at the Toronto Cartoonists Workshop in Semptember!

Paper Acting: Expressive Anatomy and Its Uses in Graphic Storytelling

Instructor: Leonard Kirk

A comic book artist, like a film director needs actors to tell his story. Cartoonists have to breathe life into their characters and the best way to do that is through their facial and manual expressions. From Will Eisner to Alex Ross artists working in the medium of comics have had to be expert in this regard.

In this course we will begin by learning simplified methods of drawing the complex shapes of the heads and hands. Basic anatomy will be covered. Students will use their own faces as reference and learn to utilize photo reference effectively. Exercises will involve the student producing short narrative pieces that involve characters showcasing the potential of human expression. If you want to learn to draw everything from grimaces involving bone crunching fisticuffs to the nuanced glances and feather touch of a romantic love scene this is the course for you!

A Hugo Award Nominee for best Graphic Story, Leonard Kirk has drawn Batman, Supergirl, the Legion of Superheroes and the Justice Society of America for DC Comics. For Marvel comics, for whom he is currently a contract artist Leonard has delineated the adventures of the Avengers, Captain Britain, the X-men and the Hulk. Somewhere in between he was the artist on Star Trek for Malibu Comics. To add to his list of prestigious assignments, he is currently the marquee artist on New Mutants for Marvel.

Start Date: September 16th, 2010 to October 28th, 2010

Time: Thursday Evenings 6:30pm.-9:30pm.

Length: 7 weeks of 3 hour classes

Cost: $350. plus H.S.T.
