April 26th, 2017 'Mini Con' UPDATED

Last April, the Ottawa Comic Jam celebrated the "convention season". Since quite a few of our members (both past and present) enjoy participating in cons, we held a 'Mini Con' of our own. Artists and other creative folk brought things they had prepared for the convention circuit to show off, share, sell and trade. It was a lot of fun! Hope everyone enjoys comic cons this year and gets inspired to make more comics, write stories, connect with creative people and fans :-)

Thanks to the Shanghai Restaurant and the Kwan family for supporting the Ottawa Comic Jam (we even got Don to do a doodle or two this time round!) Thanks to everyone who took the time to come out and draw with us last month and tell fun, cooperative stories: Suzanne Marsden, Clayton Jacobs, Andrew Stutt, Sophie Nicholas, Scott MacLellan, Liz Walsh, James Rule, Ifer Lawrence, Keith Savage, Shashi Bhushan, Leticia Charles and Don Kwan.

Enjoy the artwork!
Cheers,
Sue.

March 29 2017 Message in a Bottle UPDATED

What would you write and put in a bottle to send out to the world? What would you think if you found a bottle with a note (or comic) in it? These ideas were the springboard of March's comic jam and helped spur some fun ideas for cooperative drawing!

Thanks to those who joined in the fun at the Shanghai Restaurant: Sue Marsden, Clayton Jacobs, Andrew Stutt, Scott MacLellan, Liz Walsh, James Rule and Don Kwan.

Cheers!
Suzanne.
