    Report on: FanExpo 2016

    The mythic FanExpo has gotten to the size that nobody needs to be told about it, anybody in the city who isn’t going has a cousin or co-worker or some contact who is going to meet Stan Lee. Toronto’s now all-purpose convention for any media junkies who can handle the …

    Report On: Art Toronto 2014

    Appreciating art doesn’t need a college degree. It just needs some time to focus and examine shape, colour, light and cultural context. This year Art Toronto‘s attendee crowd seemed slightly younger than it has in previous years (or perhaps I’m just older) but there was a still a sense of class. …

    Report On: FanExpo 2014

    The winter con was a modest but fun experience. The March convention was a fun experience too. But Informa would be foolish to think they were prepared for an event the scale of Fan Expo. Always a mixed bag, a lot of great experiences, interactions, deals, and the fear that …
