Cloudscape is a great organization to meet, connect, and collaborate with numerous fellow comic creators, and there’s similar organizations in many other places as well. For comic fans in the interior of BC, there’s the Okanagan Comic Arts Association. This organization is dedicated to “creation, community, and education” with regards to comics. They foster local cartoonists, artists, and writers as they pursue their craft by connecting creators, readers, retailers, and educators across the Okanagan Valley and working with schools and libraries to explore the potential comics have for young and developing readers. If you’re ever in the Okanagan area, check the OCAA out. You can learn more about them on the Okanagan Comic Arts Association website and their Facebook page.
In this next excerpt for the Epic Canadiana Kickstarter, we have “Soldier Skye,” an adventurer from Canada’s colonial days who confronts Ogopogo in a story by Ian Thomas and Kris Sayer.
You can see more of Kris Sayer’s work at Weald Comics.
