Eric Dyck is a cartoonist living & working in Lethbridge! His comic strip, Slaughterhouse Slough, explores the history, vegetables, critters, and people of his new Southern Alberta home. Eric’s comic stories are developed from research, interviews and eavesdropping. Eric also teaches cartooning & comics classes for children and youth, and his freelance illustration work can also be found in magazines, coffee shops, farmer’s markets, and city hall. In 2018, Eric adapted Jane’s Walks, neighbourhood history tours written by Kevin MacLean, into a series of comic strips about the Upper Victoria Park Neighbourhood. The collection of these comic strips, “Go-Carts & Ice Castles”, is available now.
