Mini Comic-Con to feature artists, contests

May 02, 2014 - 10:13 AM

KAMLOOPS — The TNRD Library System’s Kamloops Library is hosting its second Mini Comic-Con. The event, which happens Saturday, May 10, starting at 2 p.m., features an appearance by two well-established comicbook artists, as well as fun art and costume contests that offer prizes.

Open to teens 13 to 18 years old, the Mini Comic-Con will be highlighted by the appearance of two graphic artists, Vancouver-based manga artist Nina Matsumoto, a.k.a. “Space Coyote,” and Bongo Comics’ John Delaney.

Matsumoto and Delaney, with some help from High Octane Comics, will also act as judges for the Mini Comic-Con’s art contest.

Budding artists are encouraged to create an original 2-D art piece in comic or manga style on any topic (keep it clean!) and in any media.

Contestants are asked to keep the size of their artwork to a maximum of 18 inches by 24 inches for display purposes. Entries should be dropped off at the Children’s Desk at Kamloops Library by Wednesday, May 7, at 5 p.m.

All art will be displayed in the library and judging will take place the day of the event. Winners will be announced that day, too, with first prize supplied by High Octane Comics. There will also be an entry selected as a fan favourite. And attendees are reminded to dress up as well, as there will be a prize for best costume.
