New Interview Posted

Halloo Jammers!

Thanks to everyone who came to the Solstice Jam at the Shanghai Restaurant, Wednesday, June 26th. It was a full house with over 20 artists and writers in attendance. Jim Woolley from Just Push Play (GS Central) was also there and took the time to interview me at the end of the evening.  It was delightful getting to meet him and I'm grateful for the opportunity to promote the Ottawa Comic Jam and other comic related events that are upcoming in the Nation's Capital.

I will be scanning and posting art from our May jam soon (if you're desperate for fresh art, head on over to the updated  Chinatown Remixed 2013 jam art that I posted last week). Keep an eye out for new photos that are going to appear there as well!

I was very happy that some of our May jam stories got worked on (thanks Gisele, Anna & Marisol!) As well, the June jam art is just hilarious and I'll be scanning and posting that over the next while (I hope :-)

We were very lucky to have in attendance, the extremely talented and very funny Eric Dyck who was in town for the evening on his way from the Maritimes to Alberta. Safe travels, man & thanks for the wonderful contributions n_n

Take care, keep creative and have a happy, healthy and fun Canada Day!
