July 25th Open Theme Comic Jam

July is traditionally an open theme evening and this year was no different. We had a great group turn out at the Shanghai Restaurant to draw some hilarious and bizarre comics. It was nice seeing the old crew and also welcome some new artists to the Comic Jam way of life.

Thanks always to Don and the great staff at the Shanghai who take such good care of us and make us feel welcome in a supportive and creative space.

Thanks to the folks who came to the jam and contributed their talents to making it a memorable evening: Clayton Jacobs, Andrew Stutt, James Rule, Liz Walsh, Scott MacLellan, Dwight Williams, Cole Hogan, Julia Tiller, Jill Stothart, Mike Schnier, Marisol Eggleton, Amy VanTorre and Keith Savage.

August 12th is the beginning of Comic Book Shark Week Two (CBSW2), launched by Troy Little in 2011. To find out all about the excitement of Comic Book Shark Week, head over to the official site!

August 16th there is a CBSW2 event in Charlottetown PEI. Unfortunately I can't physically join in there, but will be working remotely in the spirit of CBSW. I'll be taking the opportunity to finish four of my 'orphan' 24 Hour Comics Day comics that are each missing about 4 pages (I figure that's about 16 pages in total!) Troy Little and I will hopefully Skype and cheer each other on.

Feel free to launch yourself into a comic-making frenzy during this fantastic week of shark and comic related goodness! Buy the t-shirt! Hang out with your 'chums' n__n

Draw :-D
