downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Paper X Needs You

Illustrator Sandy Christie is putting together another Paper X collection, following up on the success of the first which was sold at the first Glasgow International Artists Book Fair.

Paper X is a new zine experiment where anyone can submit. Ass with the planned but unrelated Alternative Press Anthology (see news story),the aim of the project is to "get a flavour of what's out there and bring it together as one.

"The blank paper x source books can be drawn, painted, written in, stuff stuck in etc source books will be rotated to spur random collaborations."

There are a couple ways to submit: the first is by email paper.xx@gmail.com, sending jpeg at 300dpi; the second is to to locate the paper x source books. These are contained in protective zip tuff bags, around Glasgow such as the Collective gallery and Deadhead Comics Embassy gallery.

Sandy is looking for contributions in any medium
-- paintings, drawings, photos, collage, or writing. "Anyone can submit from anywhere," she says. The first deadline is 15th March 2009

"This will be an excellent platform to show your work," feels Sandy. "These books somehow get everywhere, so make it count your piece must register truthful and be contemporary: same rule as before, no dull stuff, keep it fresh and take a risk.
