The Toronto Comics Arts Festival (TCAF) 2010 has announced that the cartoonist Daniel Clowes will be the show's headlining guest, a rare convention appearance of any kind for Clowes. In anticipation of that appearance, Clowes has provided the art to be used in this year's festival poster, seen above. The popular festival is scheduled for May 8 (9 AM to 5 PM) and May 9 (Noon to 5 PM) and is to be held in the venue enjoyed by the show in 2009: the Toronto Reference Library at 789 Yonge Street. Admission is free.

Clowes is releasing Wilson through Drawn and Quarterly this spring, his first new comics work in several years. Peggy Burns at D+Q will coordinate access to Clowes; all other media inquiries including general accreditation questions should go .

The festival also announced that the 2010 TCAF web site will go live on Tuesday at this url. A fully updated guest list of over 200 exhibitors will be available at that time. My mother and I will be there as well.
