Ottawa Comic Jam

Home | Old Art Scans

Wednesday October 28th was a grim and dreary evening, perfect for a horror-themed comic jam at our favourite home-away-from-home; the Shanghai!
 
For 3 hours, artists created a great number of pages (over 20), crazy stories, unique characters and memorable one-liners: "Because I Have No Eyes!". We were interviewed for CKCU (93.1 FM) radio by Nicki Thomas, and filmed for TV by Carleton journalism students Meghan Sali, Andrew Foote and Erin Walkinshaw.
 
It was a memorable evening where almost everyone got to share a piece of their knowledge and interest in comics for radio or TV. We didn't scare too many folks from the Shanghai and Helen was her usual patient and lovely self (this is the delightful woman who brings me dumplings and beer!)
 
Special thanks goes out to the artists for making the night possible, and for being patient, friendly and of course SCARY: Clayton Jacobs, Steve Bissonnette, Douglas McLeod, Elizabeth Walsh, Colleen Temple and Mike Valiquette.
