COMIC BOOK SHARK WEEK
JULY 31st to AUG 7th
That's right chums, it's the kick off to CBSW 2011 and I'm going at it like a school of Mako's on a wounded seal. Yes, it's that special time of the year when comic creators across the globe work themselves up into a creative frenzy and become productive killing machines!
Find out more about this annual event HERE and then GET TO WORK!
So on top of working on the first draft of my next book, taking part in the Arts in Motion Festival, drawing, inking, sketching and painting I plan on hosting a 24 Hour Comic Party at the West End Cottage in Summerside!
The history and rules of the event can be found on Scott McCloud's website.
Bring paper, pens or whatever you like to draw with and on and be ready to go at 9:00AM sharp Thursday, August 4th. Then get ready to crank out the pages without stopping for 24 hours! (I've done this twice before, it's grueling but fun in a group). NOTE: table space at the cottage is limited, if you have a portable drawing table - bring it!
CBC TV was by last week and did a small segment on the Artist in Residence program, check it out:
That's it! See you at 471 Notre Dame St. during the times listed below.
