Join Ken Steacy, Eisner Award winner for a fun interactive activity "Chalk Talk"

KEN STEACY decided at age eleven to become a professional comic book writer/artist, a dream he realized in 1974. Since then, he has worked in the industry as author, artist, art director, editor, and publisher, chronicling the exploits of Spider-Man, Harry Potter, and the Star Wars gang, to name but a few.

In addition to creating his own intellectual property, he has also collaborated with other writers, including Harlan Ellison, Isaac Asimov, and Douglas Coupland. The recipient of an Eisner and an Inkpot award, Ken was inducted into the Joe Shuster Awards Hall of Fame in 2009, a lifetime achievement award honouring Canadian comic book creators for their contributions to the industry.

He currently teaches at Camosun College, Victoria in Comics & Graphic Novels, a program he co-created with his wife, author/illustrator Joan Steacy.
