I will be speaking at the Powell Street Festival, an annual celebration of Japanese-Canadian culture in Vancouver. 12:30 PM at the Firehall Studio on July 29, Saturday. Unlike the ads say, I will not be doing a reading. I’m sure a live reading of a comic book would be kinda interesting, but I’m not prepared for that kind of performance art yet. Instead I’m going to talk about how I started my career and some of the quirks that come with being a Japanese-Canadian who draws manga that isn’t manga because it’s in English!
