Cloudscape HQ will be closed April 20 as we’ll be at SNAG!

snagAs we mentioned before, on Wednesday, April 20, Cloudscauep will be participating in SNAG at the Cobalt Club, painting original artwork and selling books from 7:30 to midnight. Because of that, the HQ will be closed on April 20. So come over to the Cobalt instead! A lot of great artists from our upcoming book Bones of the Coast will be painting there, including Renee Nault, Reetta Linjama, Simon Roy, and Pam Wishbow. Stop on by!


Cloudscape at Creative Ink

Convention season is starting up and I’d to remind everyone that Cloudscape will be prominently featured at a exciting new convention: the Creative Ink Festival for Writers, Readers, and Artists on May 6-8. Unlike many other conventions, the focus at Creative Ink will be on creating stories and art yourself rather than simply enjoying those created by others. There will be panels with several people discussing various writing and art topics, as well as single-person presentations. There will also be readings by authors, displays by artists, and an expo of people selling their goodies (books, art, etc), as well as Blue Pencil sessions where writers can get feedback on their writing from professionals and pitch sessions where people can pitch their projects to various editors and publishers. Many artists from Cloudscape will be giving various presentations on writing and drawing comics, creating webcomics, and many other topics. It will be a lot of fun. So sign-up for Creative Ink and we hope to see you all there next month!


Cloudscape Edition of SNAG

snagWednesdays at the Cobalt Club is SNAG, where artists paint all night and the club raffles them off. It’s a great way to get some original artwork without losing a bundle. Cloudscape will be participating in SNAG on April 20th from 7:30 – midnight. We’ll be raising money for Bones of the Coast that night, we want everyone in Cloudscape to come if possible. See SNAG’s Facebook page for more information.


Launch Party for Steve LeCouilliard’s “Una the Blade”

una the blade

We at Cloudscape are excited to announce the book launch of Una the Blade by Steve Le Couilliard, a swords & sorcery graphic novel of a barbarian single mom struggling to protect her children in a world gone mad.

Cloudscape will be celebrating the Una book launch on:

Saturday, March 19, 2016
2:00-5:00 PM
Storm Crow Tavern
1305 Commercial Dr, Vancouver

The event is free and everyone is welcome. Steve will be there selling and signing copies of Una as well as limited edition postcards and original art. Also attending the launch will be numerous other prominent local comic creators, including many Cloudscape members. Visitors will be able to purchase food and drink from the tavern, the Storm Crow’s unique fantasy & sci-fi atmosphere, and hobnob with a wide selection of Vancouver’s diverse comics community. Sign-up to the event’s Facebook page at the Una the Blade Book Launch.

Una the Blade is a dying-earth fantasy adventure in the style of such classic authors as Jack Vance and Clark Ashton Smith. It is the long-gestating brainchild of Steve LeCouilliard, creator of the Xeric Grant-winning Much the Miller’s Son, co-creator and artist of Dreadful Sirens with writer Karla Pacheco, and a 12-year veteran of the animation industry. He is joined in Una by a parade of comic artist greats: Simon Roy, Katie Shanahan, Tess Fowler, Renee Nault, Chris Johnston, Michael Stearns, Claudia Aguirre, and Sloane Leong.
