DakotaAs regular Prairie Dog readers know, Dakota is an award-winning comic artist and illustrator whose work is regularly featured in our magazine. He was born and raised in Regina, and lived here most of his life before heading stateside a few years ago to obtain his MFA from the Center For Cartoon Studies in Vermont. He currently lives in Toronto with his wife Laura who is a co-founder of the Regina Urban Ecology blog and is big into progressive urban planning.

On Sunday, Dec. 8, Dakota will be in town to launch his new book Other Stories and the Horse You Rode In On at Central Library. The launch, which includes an artist talk, is at 1 p.m., and that will be followed by a cartoon workshop that’s geared toward kids that will run from 2:30-3:30 p.m. To find out more about Dakota and his work visit his blog. And here’s a link to the interview Emmet Matheson did with Dakota in our Nov. 28 issue.
