It’s time for the 2nd comic jam of 2010, brought to you by the Cartoonist Conspiracy San Francisco and the Cartoon Art Museum Bookstore. The goal is to create a 40 page Mini-Comic Jam anthology with this session’s theme: Retro Tikis and Texture.

The event is FREE to any artist who wants to participate, but spaces are limited and on a first-come-first serve bases.

A printed version of our final mini-comic will be available to participants for $5** each (includes printing and shipping) and will be mailed out in the following two weeks.

What (to bring): Yourself and your favorite drawing tools, especially tools to make textures (stamps, rubbings, stencils, etc), inspiration and reference that fits the theme, and your networking paraphernalia.

Schedule:

11:00 am – Sign-in, set-up and schmooze.

11:30 am – Warm-Up Art Jam

12:00 pm – Post the warm-up drawings in the bookstore. Set up to draw. Take a break for a quick lunch or snack if you like.

5:00 pm STOP

Clean-up and vote on your favorite warm-up drawing. The winner will get a prize of some sort.

** Each artist can get copy(s) of the final Mini-Comic for $5 each; a few extra copies will be available at the bookstore for a full price as our way of helping this wonderful non-profit museum out.

++ (Legal stuff) By participating in the Jam you are giving permission for your work to be placed on-line by the Cartoonist Conspiracy San Francisco and that a limited number of books can be sold as a fundraiser for the Cartoon Art Museum through its bookstore.
