Join us at the Minnesota Center For Book Arts, Saturday March 12th, 10 am to 4pm.
Mini-Comics Day is an annual event celebrating the art of cartooning and creating hand-made comic books (the first event was held April 9th, 2011). It happens on the second Saturday of March every year.
On Mini-Comics Day, participating cartoonists from around the world will write, draw, and print copies of a mini-comic, completing the entire process from start to finish in a day or less. Anyone in the world can participate.
Mini-comics have been democratizing the art of making comic books since the 70â€™s or earlierâ€¦ with the popularization of photocopiers, it became apparent that anyone with an inclination and some spare change could print a little comic book. Wildly varying in both form and content, mini-comics are a wonderful synthesis of cartooning and hand-made art objects.
Guidelines: To participate, create a mini-comic from start to finish on Mini-Comics Day (including writing, drawing and printing it). You can make your mini-comic by yourself or with other artists.
Format: Your mini-comic can be any size, length and format you desire. A standard mini-comics size would be eight 4.25â€³x5.5â€³ pages (which can be made from one 8.5Ã—11 sheet of paper printed on both sides).
