With an assortment of markers, brushes and other drawing materials in hand, Ricardo Liniers performs an illustrator’s version of a high-wire act on the Wordfest stage, drawing improvised cartoons live in real-time to the musical stylings of Andrew Wedderburn & Lorrie Matheson. Hosted by Jeet Heer, a Toronto based journalist and co-editor of Arguing Comics: Literary Masters on a Popular Medium.
Ricardo Siri Liniers is a well-known and truly beloved Argentine cartoonist noted in Latin America for his successful comic strip Macanudo. Liniers’ new collection Macanudo #1 appears in English at Wordfest.
Andrew Wedderburn & Lorrie Matheson perform in a rock and roll group from Calgary that plays hook-driven post-punk (think Hüsker Dü with organ solos).
