A talk with guest speaker
Michael Comeau

Brought to you by the Toronto Zine Library

Sunday, April 29th, 2007. 1:30pm


292 Brunswick Avenue
. Toronto.

Please join us for a talk with special guest zine-maker Michael Comeau hosted by the TZL Collective at the Toronto Zine Library. In his talk, Michael will talk about his personal history with zines, and how his involvement in zine culture has informed his practice as a professional artist and screen printer.

Michael Comeau is a Toronto-based printmaker and poster artist, and a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design. In addition to his work as an artist, he has been a zine-maker for many years, and was formerly the director of the Cut’N’Paste zine fair, as well as the Penny Arcade Print Shoppe and Gallery in Kensington Market. His recent projects include a solo show, Excretion Escapades, at Magic Pony and the curation of Regal Beast, a series of art anthologies.

The Toronto Zine Library is run by a collective of zine readers, zine makers and librarians who are looking to make zines more accessible in Toronto. We believe that zines are still an important medium of communication, and that they should be cherished, protected, and promoted. Our aim to do this through our public collection of zines, conducting related workshops at our physical library and abroad, and by holding events that promote zines as a method of open communication and free expression.
