Vancouver Comic Jam!


Rather than stare at my computer on a Saturday night, as per usual, I made my way out to Main St last weekend and took part in the Vancouver Comic Jam, which is a cool sit-down involving drawing a panel of a one page comic and passing it on to the rest of the group to finish. As you might imagine, the results can be odd, funny or both. Check out this month’s drawings and see if you can pick out my infantile doodlings!

Actually, the results were really good. I didn’t find your doodle. I’ve always wanted to go to comic jam, but I’m not too good at drawing by hand, so I’m terrified of having to draw something with all these great comic artists and mess up the panels!

Warren says:

My doodle was at the bottom in the “artists” drawing and it’s the first panel with the guy working at Teletoon, who ends up running old Russian cartoons.

I’m not great at drawing either, but I didn’t let that stop me. The great thing about comics is that people involved are generally pretty cool and not judgey, and everyone is just there for fun (and beer.) The next one is on July 18th, you should go!
