|Jack Kirby August 28 1917 - Feb 6 1994|
Thanks to Scott MacLellan, Amy VanTorre, Ifer Lawrence, C.D. Rudd, Clayton Jacobs, James Rule, Liz Walsh, Gérard Bélec and Denis Belair for taking the time to share their creativity with the group!
We are also fortunate to have such a great venue for art-making at the Shanghai Restaurant. There is always interesting, varied artwork on the walls to help inspire us and the Kwan family make us feel right at home.
May's theme was Jack "The King" Kirby! I used photocopied cut-outs from a fantastic book I found at the Ottawa Public Library to launch ideas for panels. Also, for a few areas where the writing was a bit hard to see, I want to thank Nate Piekos at the Blambot fonts for the use of his 'BackIssues' font which made the art pop!
Here's to another nine years. Thanks everyone for continuing to make the Ottawa Comic Jam a success.
