Ten Whole Years!

The Ottawa Comic Jam's Ten Year Anniversary poster by
Suzanne Marsden, featuring 'Lady Death Pouch' created
by PEI comic jammer Zen Rankin!

Well it's been TEN WHOLE YEARS since the Ottawa Comic Jam relaunched in May 2019 at the beautiful, creative hub known as the Shanghai Restaurant. Like most of planned jam things, last month's jam got bumped bc of surgery in the family and the continued drama of my Mom's kitty Boz who is healing from a fractured pelvis and a bad back wound.

The old Tripod site can still be reached using the 'retro' link
to enjoy artwork from the Dim and Distant past <3

BUT! This month, surgeries have been healed up, Boz is walking, doing small jumps and almost ran the other day. His back looks great (we are using Manuka honey under his dressings).

Looking fwd to tonight's jam where we explore Good vs Evil and eat some cake for our 10th anniv. Thanks everyone for your years of support, laughter, creativity and interest in doing cooperative art-making in the Nation's Capital. Thanks also to the Kwan family for all their support and enthusiasm over the years and for providing a safe and accepting space for all people to come together to share their ideas and art.

Special thanks to Brain Power Studio, Newmarket ON, who helped fund the Jam in its infancy wayy back in 2009. DragonHead Studio, which hosts the Annual 24 Hour Comic Day challenge in Kanata ON, (the 1st Sat of October) continues to financially aid the Ottawa Comic Jam Group, for which we are eternally thankful.

Cheers! And keep on DRAWING!

The original jam poster I designed wayy back in April 2009!
