Comic Battle Round 27: Hockey Fight

Last time Comic Battle is late! I’ll pinky swear you on it. Unless my Internet’s taken out again, but should that happen I’ll draft someone else 😉 Only one entry from the last round again, but Mara Coman’s showing her Canadian pride and hockey support!

New Paintings on the Cloudscape Etsy Store

It’s been a really exciting month, and now we’re in the last stretch of our 21 Journeys Fundraiser. We’re about 2k away from our goal, with the combined contributions from members and preorders from IndieGoGo, so if you haven’t had a chance to pledge to the cause, now’s the time!

If none of our IndieGoGo perks tickle your fancy, then perhaps one of these fabulous paintings will. They are $40 each, and that includes all shipping to Canada or the United States. The paintings were donated by dedicated Cloudscape members on wooden cradle panels generously provided by Opus Framing and Arts Supplies.

Feel free to click on the images to be brought to their respective shop page for purchase information.







Cloudscape Comics has opened an Etsy Store! 1

As part of our fundraiser for 21 Journeys, Cloudscape has opened an Etsy store stock full of original paintings created by our members. The 8×8 inch wooden canvases were generously donated to us by Opus Framing and Art Supplies, and given to as many Vancouver comic artists who were willing to paint on them.

Come check out the first batch of work by Colin Upton, Ed Appleby and Anise Shaw. Each painting is $40, including Shipping, and all money will go to 21 Journeys. We will continue to post the paintings as we get them!

"POWER" by Anise Shaw

"Self Portrait in Black and Grey" by Colin Upton

"Rodent Adventure 1" by Ed Appleby

"The Cast of 'Volk'" by Colin Upton

We have some exciting submissions coming from other members, including Chloe Chan (Honeydew Syndrome, Two Keys), Wei Li (Lotus Root Children), Sydney More (Gog Mulligan), Jeff Ellis (Teach English in Japan) and many more!

Here’s a theme Vancouver almost never gets to deal with… 😛

Ice-Breaker

…but is it literally ice? Is it romantic? Social? Violent?
As always, you’ve got two weeks; submissions are due Wednesday February 2nd, 2011.
Perhaps throughout the week I’ll post up some inspiration. There are some pretty fantastic examples of mini comics from exceptional artists 🙂

For the next two weeks of comic battle, our theme is:

When Pigs Fly

Get creative, try and take the them and make it work for your comic! Will we see some entries by December 8th??

Also, I’d like to let you guys know that starting from “When Pigs Fly”, I’m going to start adding comic battles to our DeviantArt page!
Yes, we have a DA page, you can come visit (and perhaps add us if you have an account) right here! If you have a website or a DA page you’d like us to link back to, please send it along with your entry so we can credit you there as well. Alternatively, if you do not want your entry posted on DeviantArt, just let us know.
