Good god, nearly an entire decade of the International Cartoonist Conspiracy!?! I guess.Â So anyway, you should come celebrate this Thursday, Dec 1st!Â First up:
TOPIC: GAME SHOW TIME!
MODERATOR: Steven Stwalley and Kevin Cannon
DATE: Thursday, December 1, 2011
TIME: 6 â€“ 6:30 pm (right before the Cartoonist Conspiracy Jam)
LOCATION: 1618 Central Ave NE, Ste. 216, Nordeast MPLS
It’s our last Summit of the year, and to celebrate we thought we’d shake things up a little around the ol’ Attic. So on Thursday, December 1, please join us for what I can only imagine is the world’s only comics-themed game show. The questions will range from arbitrary who-would-win scenarios to fun facts about famous MN cartoonists, and we even let you weigh in on some
cartoonist-themed dating advice. The point of this is to have fun, but if you learn a little something on the side, that ain’t so bad.
Six contestants will be picked randomly at the beginning of the show. If you’d like to be one of them, send your name to nordeastcomics [at] gmail.com by December 1. You can also enter your name in person on Dec. 1 if you arrive by 6pm (but
please come a little early!).
Prizes. Prizes? Yep, everyone who puts their name in the hat will receive some sort of prize. Each of the six contestants will receive a gift card to Wet Paint Art, and the WINNING TEAM (did I mention the contestants will be split into teams?) will walk away with a $150 gift card to The Source (UPDATE: It is actually 3 $50 gift cards to the Source that will be won by different people). And if you don’t want to play, but just want to stand back and watch, well you’re welcome to do that too.
The stick around and take part in the whole damn mess that the Conspiracy was based on to begin with: JAM COMICS!
The Minneapolis Cartoonist Conspiracy meets at 6:30 until 10:00 the first Thursday of every month at Diamondâ€™s Coffee Shoppe in Northeast.
Afterwards, please join us to draw some jam comics, socialize and drink caffeinated beverages. Afterwards, we often have uncaffeinated beverages somewhere else.
The meetings are open to anyone who wants to draw with us, and the results are posted here sooner or later (and sometimes even printed).
Diamondâ€™s Coffee Shoppe
1618 Central Avenue Northeast
Please spend some money at Diamondâ€™s while youâ€™re there, even if it is just a cuppa coffeeâ€¦ they are excellent hosts, and we wanna stay welcome there.
