As part of their 'First Fridays' events, Marine Studios in Margate are putting together an exhibition that looks at comics, graphic novels and sequential art.
Featuring work from a range of local and international artists and writers, live talk from guest speaker Paul Gravett, more comics than you can stand, and the chance to discuss your work and ideas.
To kick start proceedings prior to the show they are inviting submissions for a 'Two Page Comic'.
The task: to create a two page comic under the title: 'Mechanical Elephant'. All ideas are welcome to inspire, amuse, terrify and entertain. There are no limits other than sticking to the two page rule (206 x 280 mm each, in either portrait or landscape), and of course, don't forget the Mechanical Elephant!
Send your entries as electronic files (jpeg, pdf, tif, eps or mov format) with the subject 'Mechanical Elephant' to: Kam@hkd.uk.com or Rick@hkd.uk.com
The deadline for entries is 21st January 2011. Marine Studios will display the finished artwork and as much of the preparatory work as possible in their show beginning 4th February 2011 at Marine Studios, Margate.
