DESCRIPTION

Mix up a healthy dose of humour, a pair of glassy elongated eyes, and a generous serving of characters with well-endowed proportions, and you'll probably end up with a brew of Dave Cooper's specialty. Multi-talented Cooper has done almost everything from comics to paintings and animation. In this session, Cooper will talk about the portrayal of sex in his comics and if there's ever a point where you need to draw the line (pun absolutely intended).

This session is made possible with the assistance of the High Commission of Canada and the Canada Council for the Arts.

FEATURING

Oil painter, animator, and comic artist Dave Cooper began his career in the 90s. His periodical Weasel won the Ignatz Award and the Harvey Award in 2000, and in 2002, he had a large retrospective of his comicbook artwork in Angouleme and Paris. He is the creator of two original kids television shows, Pig Goat Banana Cricket for Nickelodeon, and The Bagel and Becky Show for Teletoon/BBC. A French-English collection of his work, Pillowy: The Art of Dave Cooper has been published by Cernunnos. 

Dave Cooper is featured in the following SWF event(s):
