On July 1st Macclesfield hosts Macc-Pow!
For the second year running, Macclesfield's one-day event celebrating comic art is here! It is the creation of local comic artist Marc Jackson @MARCmakescomics and best of all, it's FREE for everyone under 16, and just a mere £1 for adults.
The town centre has been decorated in KAPOWS, WHOOSH, and BLAMS created through Macclefield's Community Art-Space in anticipation and will host artists who are experienced and up-and-coming, conduct drawing workshops, cartoon screenings and more - it's a jam packed day out!
I'll have all of my prints and postcards for sale as well as promoting my full-length comic book. I always look forward to meeting new people the most, and getting to know new places, so do drop by my table to say hello and talk comics to me! J.x
WHEN: Saturday 1st of July – 10-4pm
£££?: FREE entry for children, £1 on the door for adults (16+)
WHERE: Town Hall, Macclesfield, Cheshire, SK10 1EA
OVERDRAWN #7 Thursday May 25th
Do you like free entry, a night-long happy hour and live art happening with a DJ creating a funk n soul soundtrack to it all?
That's every last Thursday of the month at Manchester's Deaf Institute! At 7pm it's time to grab a drink, take a seat and draw all over the tables with your buddies old and new. And for #7 I'll be one of the artists drawing live upfront!
Set up by three Manchester artists in their own right, they're on a mission to promote all local artists and build up an OverDrawn community, including more frequent social drawing events, art shops, and more to be announced....
I feel very touched to have been asked and brought into the OverDrawn fold, and look forward to where this movement is heading.
See you at The Deaf Institute!
