The workshop will be taught in a combination of French and English, depending on participant needs. Suggested age is 16 and up, due to some "mature" content and discussion (sex, politics in comics, etc.), but this is flexible/up to the participant (or the participant's parents...). 8 Participants MAXIMUM so call us to reserve your spot!

Howard is one of Montreal's most beloved cartoonists (his book "Howie Action Comix" is published by Conundrum Press) and you may also be familiar with his work as an actor, musician (Nutsak, American Devices, Land of Kush), restaurant reviewer and, of course, as a regular on CBC Radio One's WireTap alongside other Librairie D+Q faves, Jonathan Goldstein and Jon Tucker!

Howard has previously held workshops at our store. He has taught at the (now defunct) Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts, and at French and English schools throughout Quebec for the Montreal English Language School Board, Blue Metropolis and local private businesses. All-in-all, he's got seventeen years of experience teaching comics and cartooning to adults, teens and children in Montreal!
