Jeff Smith at TCAF

Jeff Smith was Scholastic Canada's guest of honor at TCAF this year and he couldn't have been more pleasant and fun to hang out with the entire weekend.

Jeff did a presentation on the Origins of BONE and talked about the comics that influenced the creation of BONE, the mythology behind the story and how real places and things inspired him to include them in the comic. It was quite the in-depth talk but the audience was mesmerized for the entire time, including the kids.

He spent hours signing books for people, drawing characters in every book and speaking with every person in line to make the signing experience something really wonderful and personal. On both days, the line snaked outside the tent.
