DETAILS: The challenge is to create a mini-comic from start to finish (including writing, drawing and printing it) on Saturday May 24th, 2013.
You can make your mini-comic by yourself or with other creators. Space is limited and on a first-come-first-served basis. Find out more at the official site!
On Mini-Comics Day, participating cartoonists from around the world will write, draw, and print copies of a mini-comic, completing the entire process from start to finish in a day or less. Anyone in the world can participate. Mini-comics have been democratizing the art of making comic books since the 70?s or earlier… with the popularization of photocopiers, it became apparent that anyone with an inclination and some spare change could print a little comic book. Wildly varying in both form and content, mini-comics are a wonderful synthesis of cartooning and hand-made art objects.
MATERIALS: Basic materials will be provided as well as templates to help create your mini-comic and nearby copy stores can help compleate the challenge by reproducing copies of your masterpiece.
So, come on down on Saturday March 24 and grab a seat and make a comic. And don’t be shy about bringing down your mini-comics you have all created too!
