KATE BEATON is a Featured Guest at TCAF!

Kate Beaton is a Canadian cartoonist who appeared in the comics scene in 2007 with her online work “Hark! A Vagrant!”.  Since then, she has become a fan favorite and has gathered a significant following, with illustrations appearing in places like The New Yorker, Harper’s and Marvel’s Strange Tales anthology. Praised for their expression, intelligence and comic timing, her cartoons often display a wonderfully light touch on historical and literary topics. Her first strip collection, Never Learn Anything From History, has been a bestseller for Publisher Topatoco since its release in 2009, and her 2012 release, published by Drawn & Quarterly also called Hark! A Vagrant, was a New York Times Best Seller.

I’m going home in a week, so I am excited about that.  I was home a while ago for something and drew a few things.
