March 29 2017 Message in a Bottle UPDATED

What would you write and put in a bottle to send out to the world? What would you think if you found a bottle with a note (or comic) in it? These ideas were the springboard of March's comic jam and helped spur some fun ideas for cooperative drawing!

Thanks to those who joined in the fun at the Shanghai Restaurant: Sue Marsden, Clayton Jacobs, Andrew Stutt, Scott MacLellan, Liz Walsh, James Rule and Don Kwan.

A small, but dedicated bunch of artists and writers make the Ottawa Comic Jam very special. It was nice that on a cold, wintery February evening, folks took the time to come out and draw together in good company!

Thanks to: Suzanne Marsden, Clayton Jacobs, Andrew Stutt, Scott MacLellan, Liz Walsh and James Rule for contributing to these fun stories! Thanks as always to the Shanghai and its great staff for continuing to provide a supportive and safe space to draw and create.
