We are delighted to announce that Ray Friesen will be returning as a guest at the 2018 Discworld Convention!

Ray Friesen is a cartoonist and author of several graphic novels, many of which prominently feature penguins. He is also the artist behind the fantastic graphic novel adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Small Gods.

A lifelong cartoonist1, Ray had an early entry into professional art at the age of four, when his artwork was used in an advertising campaign. He followed this up by self-publishing his first comic when he was just twelve years old. In 2003 he was nominated for the Ignatz award for Promising New Talent, and to date has more than ten titles under his belt. 

He is currently working on a comic anthology series entitled The Foggiest, and has an additional anthology, Cats Committing Crimes, coming soon following its successful Kickstarter campaign.
