    Of Mystery and the Macabre: The Guy Davis Exhibition
    2009 Eisner award winning artist makes rare Toronto appearance
     
    artoriginals presents master of the macabre and B.P.R.D. artist Guy Davis, who will be making a special Toronto appearance at the Gladstone Hotel on Saturday, February 27 for an interactive workshop and exhibition followed by an appearance at  Toronto ComiCON as a featured guest on Sunday, February 28.
     
    Davis, recipient of the 2009 Eisner Award for Best Artist, is best known as the penciler and inker on Mike Mignola’s long running series B.P.R.D., chronicling the supernatural tales of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. Mignola, best known as the creator of Hellboy (who was a former member of the B.P.R.D. team), is also the series writer. The Hellboy property has spawned two feature films and several animated versions. Fans and many industry insiders believe that B.P.R.D. is likely to be the next Mignola property that will be adapted for the big screen.
     
    Selected works spanning Davis’ career, including Sandman Mystery Theatre, B.P.R.D. and The Marquis, will be featured in the exhibition along with an interactive and insightful workshop for registered patrons.
