CAN-CON 2011

I've been busy elsewhere for a fair while now. The day-job's been part of the reason for that, so have family-related matters, and a bit of stuff on my other blogs. If you've been following those other blogs, you've possibly already got a clue as to where this particular post is going.

But today is the day the situation's made clear:

I'm serving on the organizing committee - "ConComm" - of a local convention as a design consultant. The convention is CAN-CON 2011, the Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature.

CAN-CON was revived last year after spending the previous decade in something like a coma. This is our second year back, and we're looking to build on the success of last year's revival. Our comics-related line-up is led off by Comics Guest of Honour Leonard Kirk.

But we don't stop there, including local writer/artists Jay (Kagigi the Raven) Odjick and Janet Hetherington.

Oh! I'll be sitting on a couple of panels as well!

If you should happen to be in Ottawa on the September 9th-11th weekend, I hope we see you there!
