First Friday

January 20, 2013 § 1 Comment

This year’s exhibition takes place on Friday 1st February at Marine Studios from 6:00pm to 9:00pm and we are hoping many of you can join us for a glass of wine and some inspiring chat.

This is our third year and we are delighted to see some familiar names amongst the emails coming in. In fact I thought it would be a good idea this year to personalise the show a bit more.

So – If you could all send me a short paragraph about yourself, a picture (or drawing) of your beautiful face and maybe some of the rough sketches that went into the making of your submission I will put that up alongside the comic in the exhibition. Links to your own websites and blogs would also be good. I would love for the future of AIC to establish some sort of community identity and that depends on you…


Another wintry weekend ahead!

Hopefully you all spent last weekend inking, so with snow outside this is perfect to finish the colours.

For those of you still seeking inspiration check out our newly revised web site at to see submissions from the last two years.

Stuart Atholl Gordon and T’Sao Wei were the favourites last year as judged by Paul Gravett and the humble organisers of this event, and earned a copy of his book “1000 Comics You Must Read Before You Die”.

We’ll try to think of an equally inspirational prize to award this year. Maybe free tickets to GEEK2013 the video games festival which is on at the end of February –

And don’t forget – all submissions received before 25th January will get a place in our publication so make sure you give us your address if you can’t come to the show to collect it personally.



Cold weekend forecast

Weather forecast is for a very cold weekend in the UK (and very hot in Australia) – what better reason to stay in and finish inking?

Looking forward to getting your submissions!

What about next year?

As the submissions start to come in I am wondering what challenge we are to set for next year (so that we can publish the title with this years paper).
I really enjoy the imaginative responses to our simple titles.
So Far we have had:
Mechanical Elephant
Great Tree
Any suggestions for the next one?

Where Am I?
