Cloudscape’s Full Colour Anthology

Cloudscape Collective is a Vancouver based comic creators’ collective that publishes a yearly anthology of work from local artists. This year they’ve decided to opt for a full colour book and are looking for funding help.  They’ve established their project on Indie Go Go. These guys work so hard and honestly – the talent in their books is awesome!  Join us in helping Cloudscape reach their funding goals. There are 9 days left to contribute and lots of contribution levels and perks ranging from e-books to original art.

March 6 & 7 Weekend Events

It’s been a long time since I’ve been to a convention – a REALLY long time! And after the winter non-con hibernation I’m looking forward to getting back into it!  And this weekend is going to be a fun way to ring in the convention season: on Sunday, March 7th I’ll be at the 1st Annual Hollywood North convention, in Burnaby, as a special guest! I’ll be giving a Q&A panel on how to break into the industry too.

And for those looking for a unique comic-art-party-event experience, you should come out to the Ayden Gallery on Saturday night for the official launch of the Cloudscape Exploded View Anthology.  Cloudscape Comics is a collective of some of Vancouver’s most unique (non-superhero) comics creators, artists, writers, etc. The group includes established artists, underground cartoonists, web comic creators, animators, illustrators, and manga artists all working together. Their focus is on telling meaningful, intelligent stories through the medium of comics. Jeff Ellis and the others at Cloudscape Comics have been working so hard not only to put the anthology together, but also to promote it.  They even got some good press in a local Vancouver Courier.
