The Ting Comic and Graphic Arts Festival

From Sequential.


The Ting Comic and Graphic Arts Festival takes place next month in London, Ontario and the fest has just revealed an amazing poster and t-shirt design by cartoonist Jesse Jacobs. As well, they have added Seth to their guest list.

Full details here.

Ting is a 2-week festival, April 22-May 3, showcasing the work of 15 talented comic and graphic artists and graphic novel illustrators, from London and the greater Southwestern Ontario area, past, present and future.

Named after Merle Tingley, (Ting) the editorial cartoonist for the London Free Press from 1948 – 1986, the festival is a homage to his work and his influence on this generation of artists who revere his mascot ‘Luke Worm’ and his incredible body of work.

Centering around a gallery show at The ARTS Project, the festival will also feature comics for sale, workshops, panel discussions and more. The dual purpose of the festival is to provide a forum for artists to present their work to the public not normally accessible through normal commercial channels and to raise awareness of The ARTS Project, a non-profit arts incubator based in London, Ontario.

Opening Reception Saturday April 26, 4-6pm
