Cloudscape Comics featured in Langara Voice

Cloudscape Comics is featured in Langara College’s newspaper, the Voice:

“Cloudscape Comics Society has come a long way from its humble beginnings in the back room of a coffee shop, and is now a force to be reckoned with in Vancouver’s art scene….  A local comic artist who’s been with Cloudscape since 2016, James Brandi, said the society has been an invaluable resource for networking and meeting kindred spirits. ‘It’s the only thing like it in Vancouver, as far as I’ve been able to find,” Brandi said. “If you are involved in comics in Vancouver, you’ll end up going through there.'”

Comic from Cloudscape’s TGD2S Family Comic Jam

On July 14, Cloudscape hosted the TGD2S Family Comic Jam & BBQ, where trans, gender diverse, and two-spirit families participated in a fun-filled afternoon of comic art. It was a lot of fun, and many of the children there  participated in both comic jams (where each person draws a panel of a comic before handing it over) and exquisite corpses (where each person draws a part of a picture without knowing what had been drawn before).

Here are some of the great art we got:

On March 26, join us for an exhibition of all the posters from our “Comics in Transit 2017” posters at the Douglas College Muir Theatre Foyer.  Nine Canadian refugees had their epic stories of struggle and survive converted into dramatic comics by nine BC comic artists, and these nine stories were scattered around bus shelters all over Vancouver in October, 2017.  This gallery reception will be our first time showing them all together! Come down to Douglas College for a drink, a chance to purchase Cloudscape books, and a chance to see the full posters and meet the artists! For more information, visit the Gallery Reception Facebook event page.

Comics in Transit now displayed at Cloudscape HQ

Our latest Comics in Transit told the tales of many refugees in comic form, stories of their trials and tribulations coming to Canada. The comic pages were large, as each one was put in bus shelters for the public to read. Now the comic are available at our studio. To see more, check out the Cloudscape Instragram page, and then stop by our headquarters to read these compelling stories in person.
