May 27th, 2015 6th Anniversary Jam

It had been six whole years since the Jam launched at the Shanghai Restaurant; wayyyy back in 2009. The great thing that keeps us going is the fun people who continue to come out and draw together, talk comics, movies, genre or just whatever is on their minds. I'm deeply grateful for the wonderful community of artists and writers who have made the Ottawa Comic Jam a success. Thanks!!

Thanks to the Shanghai Restaurant also for providing a safe, supportive and creative space to explore cooperative art-making!

Thanks to those who came out last May and drew together to create whacky stories: Suzanne Marsden, Clayton Jacobs, Amy VanTorre, Andrew Stutt, Liz Walsh, James Rule, Dwight Williams, Nathan Clouwater, Gisele Jobateh, Susan Shore, Ifer Lawrence, Gérard Bélec, Scott MacLellan and Teresa Waclawik.

Cheers to another 6 years!
Suzanne.

April 29th, 2015 Spring Jam

Due to a nasty illness, I was unable to lead April's jam and had to rely on the wonderful and supportive artist Liz Walsh to step in, which she did admirably. Thanks!!!

Thank you to the Jammers who came out to write and draw and celebrate Spring (seems like a long time ago from here :-) Liz Walsh, Gisele Jobateh, Scott MacLellan, Andrew Stutt, Sophie Nicholas Amy VanTorre, Gérard Bélec, Ifer Lawrence, Dominique Barbeau, Nathan Clowater & Tim Moerman.

Cheers!
Suzanne
