Iain McCaig at Legends Comics and Books

March 27, 2009 at 10:37 am (art, Reading) (, )

The Times-Colonist reports that Iain McCaig will be at Legends Comics and Books tomorrow, Saturday 3/28, between 2-5pm to talk about his work with George Lucas (yes, that George Lucas) and others. He’ll also be signing copies of his new book Shadowline: The Art of Iain McCaig.

I like the way McCaig dreams, and here’s hoping that his vision doesn’t remain just a fantasy. To whit:

Prepare to be inspired. The Santa Monica-born author, illustrator and concept artist’s enthusiasm is infectious.

“When I walk downtown and see teenagers sitting there I think, ‘If I could just put a camera in their hands or show them how to write about the world they live in,’” says McCaig, who dreams of one day turning Victoria into Canada’s storytelling capital.

See Michael Reid’s Times-Colonist article, Concept artist offers glimpse into creative realm, for more.
