The first is always the most exciting (or it’s supposed to be), but at the same time it’s usually the hardest one.
So even if the people @ Nobrow are well known for publishing some of the best current artists in the comic scene, organizing such an ambitious festival is a completely different thing. But this is what they have in mind for this summer so… we won’t be the ones spoiling their ambition.
In fact, we’re here to remind you that ELCAF (East London Comic & Arts Festival), as still in the “building” phase, are looking for partners, artists, shopkeepers (you can be both at the same time) and whoever can provide & sell not only amazing material but also a few funny stories to tell entertain potential customers while flipping through your weird comics, and a big big smile (although you’ll have to pay a fee if willing to have a desk of course).
The whole festival program, details of the artists, talks and more have yet to be unveiled, but one thing is sure… they’re be reviving the cartoon jamming exercise that the TV series Tac Au Tac put in place in the 70s for some of the most famous Belgian BD artists… André Franquin, Morris, Peyo & Jean Roba.
We’re anxiously awaiting for the full details of the program, so as soon as we know more, will give it an events posting and let you know… for now (or more info for being part of the event), just head to their page.
