Another Comic Convention at MCM Expo
Cartoon and Comic Arts will once again have a stand at the London MCM Expo Comic Con. We Are at stand CC5
We are also taking 21 students to the event, so keep an eye open for us. Some are serious Coplayers as well.
We are hoping to meet up with the graduating students from July and see what they have been working on while away from the University.
I'm hoping this will form a stepping stone so in May we can head over to the MCM event with 2nd year students who should be setting themselves up as publishing companies and devising and selling their work.
Other events we want to make you aware off
Cartoon & Comic Arts is developing strong Academic roots with the Cartoon Museum in London, V&A, British Library, The Cartoon Archive at Leeds, Dundee University MA in Graphic Novels and DC Thomson of Dandy and Beano fame. Over the next 3 years we will be developing links and co hosting events at the university to include members of the community and build links with other institutes.
I've recently been in touch with the Twinning committee for Stoke-on-Trent City Council and the Germany town of Erlangen. They hold their own Cartoon Saloon once every 2 years, so we are hoping to link up with them and hold some thing internationally.
Because of the success of the Stoke Con run by Six Towns Radio we are currently planning on doing a 2nd event, with a bigger comic village run by Cartoon & Comic Arts. If anyone is interested in selling their work at the event keep a check on the blog. Once we have a date and everything confirmed we will be posting religiously.
