January 7000 BC Meeting | Sunday, January 6 | 1:00–2:30 | Winning Coffee | 111 Harvard SE | Albuquerque, NM
It’s a full day of comics and 7000 BC on Sunday, January 6:
1:00–2:30 — our monthly meeting will be held at Winning Coffee at 111 Harvard SE, just off Central, across from UNM. We’ve got conventions to plan, education programs to organize, and much catching up with each other to do.
3:00–5:00 — Stranger Factory presents Jimmy Palmiotti in a writing workshop. Several of our members are going, and we hear that spaces are still available; register with Stranger Factory at firstname.lastname@example.org or (505) 508-3049.
5:00–on — we’ll be getting together at the Frontier to discuss and share what we learned in the workshop, and for some food after a busy day.No comments
We’ll also be making plans for upcoming conventions; the fall’s starting to fill up with events, so we’ll be looking for help.No comments
Join 7000 BC as we host the second annual Mini-Comics Day, an international celebration of the art of cartooning and creating hand-made comic books.
On Mini-Comics Day, participating cartoonists (this means YOU!) will write, draw, and print copies of their own mini-comics. Wildly varying in both form and content, mini-comics are a wonderful synthesis of cartooning and hand-made art objects. This is a FREE event and everyone is welcome!
Comics creators from 7000 BC will will be on hand throughout the event to answer questions and give guidance. We’ll provide some art supplies, or bring your own. We’ll even help you print, fold and staple your mini-comics as you complete them. Bring your papers, pens, and imaginations!
1:00-2:00 pm – For those who would like some guidance, a short lesson on making mini-comics and comics in general will be presented by 7000 BC.
1:00-5:00 pm – Make your minis!
Comics, mini-comics, and books by 7000 BC creators will also be available. Sponsored by Page One Books, and 7000 BC – independent comics from New Mexico!
Once again, 7000 BC will distribute a Free Comic Book Day edition of its anthology string at comic shops in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Look for it (and maybe a few group members) at:
- Ares Wargames
- Big Adventure Comics
- Comic Warehouse
- Lobo Anime & Comics
- Twin Suns Comic Books & Game Center
- Old West Comics & Games
