Animation Gallery

New Proposal

The curator of Sault Ste Marie's Art Gallery of Algoma has proposed an addition to the gallery devoted to animation. According to a local web-tv station, curator Michael Burtch has asked his city council to consider an $8 million Animation Centre to house a donated collection of animation cels and original art. The results of a feasability study for such a centre were approved by the city in March 2004. Such a centre would be the first of its kind in Canada, outside of holdings attached to film centres like the Montreal cinematheque.

Bookshelf Booklaunch

The Canadian Comic Art Centre was on hand for the launch of Parting Ways, a new graphic novel written by Edmonton's Andrew Foley and illustrated by Guelph cartoonists Scott Mooney (pencils and inks) & Nick Craine (inks). A small crowd of comics afficionados and family gathered at the Bookshelf Cafe to chat with the artists who signed books and offered nachos.

Also present was legendary Guelph cartoonist John MacLeod (below). John self-published the seminal minicomic Dishman in the 1980s and 90s.

The book, published by Speakeasy, concerns a suicide who survives his own death but becomes separated from his soul. A meditation on death, love and the contemporary art world, Parting Ways is Mooney's first major comics project. Nick Craine is responsible for two previous graphic novels and is an experienced journeyman inker for U.S. comics behemoth Marvel.
