Vancouver Comic Con

I’m going to be a special guest at Vancouver Comic Con!


It’s my first time flying solo without Rock, Paper, Cynic‘s amazing stuff on the same table, so I’m excited (and nervous!) to see how my postcards and posters do without his hilarious poster prints luring people to the booth.

I also just made a two-volume chapbook set of poetry that I will have for sale at the convention.

Chapbook-making supplies

I Saw You Vancouver is a collection of my haiku written in the underused poetic form of “missed connections” – like the “I Saw You” section of the Georgia Straight. The poems are small sketches of the diverse people who make Vancouver my favourite city in the world.

Here are two of the poems:

The worst place to get a sunburn is a nude beach.This is a poem from a book I just made! It’s a collection of “missed connection” inspired haiku about all the diverse people who live in Vancouver: the city I love. Prefer Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest ? Follow my haiku and poetry there!

Umbrellas are not useful in light rain and wind. PLEASE buy a rain coat instead.Another “missed connection” haiku. I’ll be selling my books (two volumes!) at Vancouver Comic Con tomorrow! I’m even a special guest :D Prefer Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest ? Follow my haiku and poetry there!

The book does not include any images…yet! I encourage people to illustrate the poems in their copy of the book (or get artsy friends to draw in it).

If you can’t make it to the convention, you can buy my book and postcards in my online store.
