TCAF is proud to reveal the official poster for #TCAF2021! The poster was created by Cole Pauls, a Tahltan First Nation comic artist, printmaker and illustrator, now in Vancouver but originally from Haines Junction, Yukon.
In his own poster reveal on Instagram, Cole writes, “Traditional indigenous storytelling can be expressed through song & dance. Transformation masks are regalia you’d wear performing sacred songs. This poster illustrates how comics can reveal a whole new world to the reader and how empowering it is to see authentic representation of your own culture on a page. Essentially, this is what it felt like to me the first time I read a Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas or Gord Hill book!!!”
