March 19, 2021: Meet FnordCon Guest: Lar deSouza

As we get closer to our FnordCon extravaganza (April 10 and 11, on our Discord server), we are delighted to have a couple of very special guests to entertain the crowds and let us have food breaks. Today's featured guest is artist extraordinaire Lar deSouza!

Lar deSouza, beard advocate, noted hat enthusiast and Internet Uncle, is really good at sitting. He sits like a champ. And when he sits, he draws. Like, a LOT. For the past 19 years, Lar has been pulling double duty as the cartoonist for the 2008 Shuster Award winning online comic "Looking For Group" (LFG.co) and the comic "Least I Could Do" (LICD.com). Lar has also been the recipient of the Prix Aurora Award for Artistic Achievement in Canadian Science Fiction (2008, 2006), and numerous other awards for caricature and cartooning.

He was born to humble surroundings on a Hallowe'en night many years ago. After an apparently normal childhood, he attended Sheridan College of Visual Arts where he obtained diplomas in Illustration and Computer Graphics. While other artists might have muses that look like Grecian oracles, Lar's wears three fingered gloves and speaks in a shout. It was only a matter of time before professional cartooning called his name.
 
He has no idea what to write for program bios and suggestions are welcome. The Hallowe'en bit is true.
 
And yes, he does look like his caricature.
 
You can see his online work at Least I Could Do, Looking for Group, and on Pinterest.
 
FnordCon is free and open to the public. Watch here, and on our social media, for links to the show as we get closer!
