Ting Comic & Graphic Arts Festival


Thank you to everyone who supported and participated in the 2017 Ting Comic & Graphic Arts Festival. Stay tuned for Tingfest’s 5th anniversary, coming to you in Spring 2018!

Ting Comic & Graphic Arts Festival (“Tingfest”) is a three-week celebration that showcases the artwork of several comic and graphic artists from London and the greater Southwestern Ontario area. Click here to see past years’ exhibiting artists.

Named after Merle ‘Ting’ Tingley, the editorial cartoonist for the London Free Press from 1948 – 1986,  Tingfest is a celebration of his work and influence on multiple generations of artists.

Tingfest centers around an art exhibition at The ARTS Project, that will also feature a pop-up comic shop, panel discussions, workshops, and more. All programs are FREE to attend and for ALL AGES!

Shout out to Andrew Lewis for designing the 2017 Tingfest logo, where he put his own spin on Ting’s iconic cartoon mascot, Luke Worm!
