New Cloudscape Comics Headquarters

One of our many rooms in the new studioCloudscape Comics is moving into a new studio!  Thanks to the City of Vancouver’s Fieldhouse Initiative, a program that repurposes neglected park buildings into free studio spaces for artist collectives in exchange for free community programming, Cloudscape has found a new home for our roster of more than 60 unique artists.

Located at 5955 Ross St. at East 41st Ave. in South Memorial Park, the new Cloudscape Comics Society HQ will be a place for artists to work together in the comic medium. It’s also a perfect location for our weekly meetings and a great classroom for us to start our free public programming. We will officially open up the studio on Wednesday November 7th, 2012. So if you plan on attending our Wednesday meetings, please visit us at the HQ!

For more information on the Field House Initiative, visit them here. If you’d like to keep up to date on our residency, visit our blog.


Miriam Libicki’s Comic course still taking registration

Miriam Libicki is still taking registration for her comic book course!

This was the best class (of many) I’ve taken at ECUAD. Libicki was well-organized and inspiring. She had just the right combination for an art instructor. I would DEFINITELY take another class with her.

[Libicki] is great! Knowledgeable and friendly. She was a great sounding board for ideas and very supportive and encouraging.

Fantastic course. Learned much, and it was fun and challenging too. The instructor is very competent and is a fantastic resource for info and critique.

This course was excellent in every way.
