VanCAF was also host to some good panels, which one of our members had the good sense to record for posterity.
The above pictures are from Intro to Comic Production by Steve Rolston, who talked about all the steps involved in making a comic from start-to-finish illustrated with excerpts from his work, (as well as a couple from Jason and David Lapham).
And secondly, we have pictures from The Last Political Cartoonists in which Kevin Wilson spoke to Matt Bors and JJ McCullough about their work and what it’s like to be young editorial cartoonists.
You can find audio recordings of the panels here.
That is me in the center, unable to turn my head to look at the person to my right. Someday….someday…
Made this for an art auction put on by the fine folks at Vancaf, my favorite con this year. Jake’s a sore loser/winner/everything.
Hey do you like good art, Pokemon, or speculative biology? If you don’t get outta here! If you do, check out the Midnight Monsters kickstarter by B9 Kingdom! They only have one week left and they are trending towards not reaching their goal. Their goal is $30,000 and their on track to reach $24,000-30,500 which is VERY narrow to say the least.
But we can change this! Even if you can’t afford to back the campaign, you can reblog this post and help spread the word. The artists working on this, KC Green, Becky Dreistadt, Frank Gibson, Evan Dahm and Yuko Ota are exactly the kind of talented and community-minded artists that we should be *patronizing. (*the money-spending definition of patronizing not the condescending one.)
Please, check out Midnight Monsters and back it if you can, but at the very least reblog this post.
This is me, one of these books is my book, I think it will be a good book if it gets funded, thank you.
Thank you Cantrip Games for telling the internet.
Wow. Cantrip games have been nothing but spectacular about things like this. Makes me very glad I supported their kickstarter.
Undertale is a new indie game, made by Toby Fox (of Homestuck music fame). You can play the demo here. It’s a quirky RPG type with an interesting story and a fairly unique battle system.
This game looks so fun. I miss funny, whimsical games. If you want to see a youtube review of the demo, check it out here.
Is anybody else going to Vancaf this weekend? If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a nice little comics festival in Vancouver, BC. You can check it all out here. I’ll be there, looking pretty for money.
