                              <ABOVE>  ADONIS HOWARD & 'PAPA' LEE TRAHAN    [ among MANY Artists ] meet & greet while drawing up a storm @ ENCORE THEATERS [ FILM.CA CINEMAS ] in Oakville, Ontario at one of Comic Store Image Collections AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Movie Events.....Where YOU there?

   A few quick pictures from one of our ART GROUP's MOVIE EVENTS for 'AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2'...

   ....THIS ONE was @ ENCORE THEATERS in OAKVILLE [Kerr St/QEW Highway area], now called FILM.CA CINEMAS who provide the giant movie screens especially well-suited for comic-based movies....Encore offers both regular & 3-D versions [when available] of most film hits!

        A larger than expected turnout came out to see amazingly the 5th BIG-BUDGET SPIDER-MAN MOVIE in the last 13 years [ 3 'Tobys' + 2 'Garfields' ], who would have predicted THAT in 1998 when MARVEL was in bankruptcy, keeping all the artists hard at work answering comic-questions, sketching, & taking requests....

HUGE THANK YOUs go out to MIKE, ADONIS, LEE, WENDY, and many others for the great time had by all....

Big Thanks to TORI at 'ENCORE' for these first photos from the Event!...

The ENCORE THEATERS are located @ 171 Speers Road, Unit 25 in Oakville!

"If Shakespeare and Michelangelo were alive today, and if they decided to collaborate on a comic, Shakespeare would write the script and Michelangelo would draw it. How could anybody say that this wouldn't be as worthwhile an artform as anything on earth?" ----Stan Lee

24 Hour Comics Day In CANADA

   .24 Hour Comic Book Day 2011 Artists at Image Collections Art Group at comic store Toronto Mississauga Streetsville 2..                    ....

    TIRED of 'BLAH' WEEKENDS?...Spice it up at least ONE WEEKEND a year, usually the FIRST SAURDAY OF OCTOBER, by doing something you haven't done in awhile [...hopefully...which means you lead healthier lives than us!! :o]....

....STAY UP ALL NIGHT!!!

Still with us?.....There are [luckily for the world at large] many out there who have probably never 'not gone to bed' EVER, and for this we salute them, though their 'social-event' selves may have suffered a bit due to this mantra....

Now, if you are ok with nocturnalness, think about writing stories....

Writing in any form can be a bit overwhelming for those not used to soaking-up-on-a-page the flow of information seeping from their stimulated cranium, having to keep track of it all, semi-organizing it on-the-fly, and producing a 'readable' version, can prove a handful at the best of times...

Luckily, the actual definition of the word 'readable' is very subjective, and, like any artform, can even lead to uncommon traits of another word, 'decipherable', which really comes in handy when we get to another component of 24 Hour Comics Book Day, the ARTWORK....

The NEXT '24 Hour Comics Day', or '24 Hour Comic Day', or '24 Mind-Melding Hours Of Pure Blissful Fun I Can Hardly Remember Due To My Astonishingly Pushing A New Baby Comic Into This World', take your pick, is SATURDAY OCTOBER 4th 2014 when  YOU  CAN  CREATE  a 24  PAGE  COMIC  in only 24 HOURS @ Image Collections!....

YOUR ART DESERVES TO BE FREE....

 

JUST ASK YOURSELF:

Hmmmm,.......I wonder if others might enjoy that story i've been slowly piecing together in my head?....

Dennis the Menace ComicsOdds are, if YOU'VE found it interesting enough to revisit time & time again in your head [and maybe even a scribble here or there on paper :o], then so will many others, who will be grateful you actually decided to share your talent...

 

.....It doesn't take much, but it could mean a LOT.... 

 

Free yourself, you DESERVE to tell your stories....and sequential art is one of the easiest ways to do it.....

 

CHECK OUT OUR ART GROUP......SUNDAYS @ 1:00 PM 

 

"Comics are capable of being anything the mind can imagine. I consider it a 
great privilege to be a cartoonist. I love my work, and I am grateful for the 
incredible forum I have to express my thoughts. People give me their attention 
for a few seconds every day, and I take that as an honor and a responsibility. I 
try to give readers the best strip I'm capable of doing.? "
------Bill Watterson quote

(American Author of the comic strip Calvin & Hobbes)
