The 2014 Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) will welcome an exciting lineup of artists and illustrators from around the world to the Toronto Reference Library on Saturday May 10 and Sunday May 11.

The Digital Innovation Hub at the Reference Library has partnered with TCAF on a fun 3D printing project.

Starting on Friday, May 9, you can download three different 3D objects from the Hub's Thingiverse page that are based on this year's TCAF poster (see above) by award-winning Canadian illustrator Michael DeForge.

You can then print these files using the Hub's 3D printer.

The 3D objects were created by Digital Innovation Hub staff member Alex Dimitrov (pictured below) - with permission from and thanks to TCAF and Michael DeForge. Thanks also to Nicolas Di Lollo for suggesting this project idea.
