Photos From Lynn’s Beguiling Book Signing

In October, The Beguiling Books and Art hosted Lynn for an evening event. In addition to signing her latest treasury book and chatting with the attendees, Lynn signed all of her books on their shelves – so if you missed meeting her, you can still get autographed books at their location at 319 College Street in Toronto.

Here are some pictures from the event. Thanks to everyone who attended!


Lynn, On Her Trip to Cartoon Crossroads Columbus

The last week of September saw me heading off to Columbus, Ohio, where I was a guest speaker and panelist at CXC: Cartoon Crossroads Columbus. They had asked me to give a talk, and take part in a panel.

CXC is more than a gathering of comic art fans; it’s where artists, publishers and collectors go to meet each other and to learn more about the industry. The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum, located within Ohio State University, has one of the biggest and most important collections of original comic art, books, films, letters, and related documents in the world. In this fairly new museum building, made possible through the generosity of the Ireland family and supported by many others, much of the weekend event took place. Other meetings and presentations took place in the Wexner Centre, another of the spectacular, classic buildings on the Ohio State University Campus.
