Since its inception, Cloudscape Comics Society has galvanized local cartoonists into creating anthologies touching on everything from urban sword-swinging fantasies to real-world historical events, planet-hopping sci-fi, and the lost medium of the large-format Sunday funnies. When the Vancouver group was pressed to think up a theme for its next collection, it only had to look to the water for inspiration. Due early this summer, Waterlogged: Tales From the Seventh Sea unites the Cloudscape crew through stories that highlight their shared coastal heritage.

‘We’re a British Columbia–based group, so we all spend a lot of time near the sea or thinking about the sea,’ Cloudscape vice-president Jonathon Dalton tells the Straight at the Ayden Gallery, where the collective is holding a group show called Stratus.

Camilla's 3rd Annual Release Party

Hello, hello!

It has been a while since I’ve seen you in person, I’m such a hermit spending all my time painting and drawing >.< So that’s why I wanted to personally invite you to my big Release Party this December 10th at the Ayden Gallery. This will be my 3rd Annual party, I don’t do that many shows here anymore, so this way I get to show everyone just what I’ve been up to for the past year ^_^

I would really love to see you there. This year I’m going all out! I’ll be doing live t-shirt painting, giant murals, and releasing some pretty fun stuff.

There will be Pillows from London, Jewelry from Australia, Tees from LA and my newest painting and Fine Art Print! Plus there will be two amazing DJs playing and a bar, so it’ll be a chance for some fun socializing!

I’m attaching the flyer to the event (visuals are always better ^.^)

Hope to see you soon!
