July 31st Comic Jam - Casual Sketch Night

Liz Walsh's fantastic custom tee!
Order one for yourself n__n
July is the time of year when lots of folks travel and things. So, traditionally it tends to be a fairly quiet jam aka 'casual sketch night'. But, with the popularity of the Ottawa Comic Jam on a steady rise, instead of five artists who hadn't left town, we had a BUNCH. And they were in fine fettle and wanted to draw-draw-draw n__n

Thanks to those who took the time to come out to the jam (the theme was 'Casual Jam' or 'Jam'): Suzanne Marsden, Clayton Jacobs, Mark Proulx, Andrés Proulx, James Rule, Liz Walsh, Scott MacLellan, George Jobateh, Dwight Williams, Gisele Jobateh, Amy VanTorre, Miles Rufelds, Jay Bird, Tim J. Moerman, JFC, Andrew Stutt and Westin Church.

And of course a big thank you to the Shanghai Restaurant, Don Kwan, China China Doll and the great staff who put up with our antics, feed us, keep us topped up with libations and provide tons of lovely 'extras' that keep us happy. YOU Rock!

Now, on to the comics!

June 26th 2013 Solstice Comic Jam

Great panel by the
talented Suze Shore!
Last June was the Ottawa Comic Jam's Solstice themed jam. It was a great time to get together and draw things that rhymed with Solstice... (lettuce, bodice, Venice...uh... yeah) n__n

Once more, thanks for everyone's patience as I catch up with the artwork uploads. I'm really happy revisiting all this fun comic stuff as I format the art and sprinkle it onto the interwebs.

Thanks to Don at the Shanghai Restaurant for making a great, creatively charged, safe space for the OCJ to get their jammin' on. It is always appreciated!

Thanks to the Jammers who came out to last June's jam as well: Suzanne Marsden (aka ME), Clayton Jacobs, Scott MacLellan, Amy VanTorre, Westin Church, *Eric Dyck, Tim Moerman, Michael Falcone, Liz Walsh, James Rule, Dwight Williams, Gérard Bélec, Suze Shore, George Jobateh, Gisele Jobateh, Anna Paluch, Zicky Hammud, Marisol Eggleton and Dixit!

*I would like to extend a special thanks to comic artist Eric Dyck who took the time to join us and create some hysterical artwork at the jam, during his journey from Moncton NB to Alberta. You can enjoy his latest comic SlaughterHouse Slough on his site!
