Sanya will not be tabling this year, but will be participating in the following panels:

Saturday, May 12, 2:45 PM: Men in Comics – Men have a long history in comics, both as readers and as characters. This panel is a chance to talk about the decisions that creators make when writing and drawing male-identified people, as well as how these creators’ experience with men in comics have shaped their work. Featuring Caitlin Major, Spike Trotman, Iasmin Omar Ata, Shieka Lugutu, and Sanya Anwar. Moderated by Eleri Harris. (Toronto Reference Library, 3rd Floor, Hinton Learning Theatre).

Sunday, May 13, 10:30am: In the Studio: Master of Materials – Sanya Anwar, Meaghan Carter and Megan Kearny have a wide range of expertise in materials and technique for comics, storyboarding and illustrations. Luckily, they want to help people get the most out of the somewhat mysterious world of art materials. This is a great chance for creators and hobbyists alike to learn more about what artists use to make their illustrations truly pop! (In Toronto Reference Library, 3rd Floor Discussion Room).
