Bento Comics at TCAF 2012—Meant To Be!

  Jun 6, 2012 by Svetlana Chmakova

TCAF (Toronto Comics Art Festival) is an amazing event held once a year in Toronto, Canada and 2012 was Bento Comics’ second date with it!  What can we say, TCAF knows how to throw a comics party and You Should All Go if you didn’t get to this year.  We will try to come back, too! 

2012 Bento Comics TCAF table was represented by…

Svet and Dan in Hat!

And they adorned the table with many books by Bento’s creators (as well as a Dan in Hat!  Also see if you can spot Svet’s reflection in the glass as she takes this picture):

…Including this year’s new Bento anthology!  Last year’s was on the theme of Sherlock Holmes and this year we decided to continue with the classics and settled our sights on “Peter Pan and the Language of the Dead”!

Peter Pan anthology

TCAF was a blast as always but a true whirlwind, so a detailed recap in nigh impossible---but!  Here are the highlights as well as some images that are certainly worth a thousand words each:


Friday highlight—dinner at the Butler’s Pantry (http://www.butlerspantry.ca/butlers/Welcome.html ) restaurant near The Beguiling, with good friends who write or edit or draw or all of the above (picture courtesy of the restaurant’s website, unsure of the artist’s name alas):

Butler's Pantry

Saturday highlight #1—TCAF!!  And all the people who stopped by to show Bento some love, thank you!  It was really hard to get a clear shot of the table because there were so many people in the hall <3

Friends!

Saturday highlight #2—more dinner food with comicking/writing friends!  Featured below are good friends of the author of this post, namely shu mai, wonton soup and delicious deep-fried banana.  It was excellent times!

Fooood.

…Also, this is what happens when you put a paper tablecloth on the table and leave artists alone with it while making their food:

…Or this:

Table Art by Svet!

…Thank you for putting up with us, kind staff at the Spring Rolls restaurant!! :D

And now last but not least, highlights of Sunday, the last day of TCAF…  A wonderful breakfast with old friends and new ones:

Breakfast!

…And an amazing TCAF afterparty at Lee’s Palace, of which no pictures sadly exist since it was waaaaay too dark and drunk in there XD  …Also, someone dropped this writer’s camera and after it made a loud ‘crack’ against the asphalt no more picture taking was possible (R.I.P., brave little camera, you are remembered fondly!)  So you all just have to imagine the festival organizers being all bashful and cutely awkward up on stage, trying to mention all the many amazing people who made TCAF happen again.  Thank you, guys, we look forward to next year!!

Bento and TCAF=OTP
