On April 11th at 8:00 PM, naturalist and poet Ian Thomas is having the launch of his second book of nature poetry and photography at Cloudscape HQ. While his first book, Twa Corbies, focused on poems and images of ravens & crows, this second book will have a wider range of themes, though all still linked to his fascination with the natural world. The launch will include Ian delivering a dramatic reading from his work.
We at Cloudscape are excited to announce the official launch of Last Night at Wyrmwood High, a tale by Kathleen Gros that’s full of wit, witches, and other things that start with “W.” This story stars three teenage monsters: a vampire, a werewolf, and a lizard-girl, who are about to graduate their monster high school and decide to perform one last prank just before they leave… but things aren’t as easy as they think. Wyrmwood High has been serialized on the Internet as a webcomic over the past year and now has achieved its final form as a beautifully printed book: Cloudscape’s first single-story graphic novel.
The launch party for Wyrmwood High will be at Lucky’s Comics on Thursday, March 3rd, at 7:00 PM. Lucky’s is located on 3972 Main Street, Vancouver, BC.
Sign-up on the launch’s Facebook event and we hope to see you all there!
This Friday, the ever-talented comic artist Simon Roy has a book launch for his latest graphic novel: Tiger Lung.
“Thirty-five thousand years ago, the world was ruled by strange beasts and ancient gods! For some Paleolithic tribes, hope lay in the shaman warriors who stood between them and the unknown. Tiger Lung follows the struggle of one of these shamans to keep his people alive in a vast, hostile universe!” The graphic novel collects the Tiger Lung adventure from Dark Horse Presents #21–#23, along with two bonus stories.
The launch is January 23 7:00-9:00 at Lucky’s Comics, 3792 Main Street, Vancouver. Stop by to celebrate with many of Vancouver’s local comic creators. For more info, visit Tiger Lung‘s Facebook event page.
The 21 Journeys Bon Voyage is at the Ayden Gallery on Saturday, September 10. 7PM-late
With the 21 Journeys Bon Voyage party just a few days away, we at Cloudscape are getting geared up to bring you one amazing event. We’re now happy to present the itinerary for the evening in 3 parts: the Games, the Entertainment and the Menu.
21 Journeys is our greatest anthology yet, and we decided we needed a night of fun and bawdy games to go with it. Join us for all night world trivia and a host of special prizes from Cloudscape’s vault. If you can wow us with your knowledge of world geography, politics, history and entertainment, we will gift you with a list of ever greater prizes. Our bounty includes:
- Original Limited Edition Art Prints from veteran members Jonathon Dalton, Angela Melick, Camilla D’Errico and Edison Yan.
- Original paintings, in acrylic and oils on beautiful 8×8” wooden canvases from a variety of artists
- Buttons, Art Cards, Minis and other pieces of one of a kind art
- Copies of Funday Sunnies, specially mentioned in Best American Comics 2009
- Your choice of any Cloudscape anthology in print
If you’d prefer to create rather than wrack your brain, we have a button press
warmed up for button commissions. Contributors from 21 Journeys will be taking your requests for any button you want, no matter how difficult or ridiculous. If you have the art itch, you’re more than welcome to draw your own button and snap it through the press. We must admit it’s very satisfying to hear that final click of a completely original button.
We will have live music courtesy of Sleuth!
Join us at the Ayden Gallery this Saturday, 7PM – Late. More information can be found on our Facebook Event.
You can purchase copies of 21 Journeys in our online store.
