This Week’s Cloud Shop: Lettering with Kathleen Jacques

This week we are learning how to letter with Kathleen Jacques, cartoonist of prominent webcomic Band vs Band. No comic is complete without lettering. Learn how to make your text pop, your sound-effects carry weight, and your pages sparkle.

The event is at Cloudscape HQ (Memorial South Park, 5955 Ross Street, Vancouver) on Thursday, September 14, 7:30-8:30. To register for this free class, go to Lettering & Typography.  For more details on future workshops, visit Cloudscape Cloud Shops.


VPL Cartoonist-in-Residence Launch on Thursday

As many of you know, Jewish-Canadian cartoonist Miriam Libicki is the Vancouver Public Library’s first cartoonist-in-residence. This Thursday from 7:00-8:30m, Miriam will be at the library’s central branch with a slideshow and interactive drawing night to launch her new residency. She’ll be talking about her career, her current project, and why she’s obsessed with exploring identity through comics. There will also be some comic jams and stereotype-threat self-portraits, and she’ll be selling her own graphic novels.
