The One Love Festival this Thursday caps off Cloudscape’s first mentorship collaboration with ArtQuake youth. It took the better part of a year, but was a great journey, and we’re proud to have been a part of it.
You can see some of the mentors art and some students comic art on display at the Roundhouse this Thursday evening, along with a lot of other fantastic visual art done by students of other program mentors (Artquake is multi-disciplinary). This is also a chance to get some exclusive posters drawn by Cloudscape artists!

We are LIVE, ladies and gentlemen! The Kickstarter for our latest anthology is up now and ready for your support! Mega Fauna is an all-ages collection of numerous animal-themed stories, from loyal pets to wild beasts to bizarre imaginary monsters, a great read for children and adults alike!

Not only can you buy the book here but numerous other goodies as well: previous anthologies, ebooks, a physical copy of Epic Canadiana #1, stickers, rare monster cards, animal portraits, and more! Check it out here and share among your friends: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1932872469/mega-fauna
The cover here is done by the amazingly talented Nina Matsumoto, author of Yokaiden and tons of Simpson comics! You can check out her work at Space Coyote. You can also find a full story drawn by Nina within Mega Fauna as well, but more on that later!

Cloudscape’s 8th Anthology Still Looking For Monster Cards!

Did you know that Cloudscape is still looking for more monster cards for our eighth anthology, Mega FaunaAs with previous Cloudscape anthologies Giants of Main Street and Waterlogged, our next book will feature a gallery of creatures in addition to the comic stories. Mega Fauna’s gallery will be creature trading cards, reminiscent of Pokemon and educational zoological cards. Some of these creatures will be included in the book, others will be part of the pack of monster cards that will be sold as part of the book’s Kickstarter fundraiser.

Your creature must be one invented by you, so no dragons or unicorns unless they’re a new breed (such as a dreamdance dragon or a candy-corn unicorn). It should also be a creature that someone might use as a pet, even though it may be a dangerous or expensive pet (such as a hundred-foot tall creature that eats cars). Remember that Mega Fauna is an all-ages book so your submission should be rated PG or below.

Deadline is September 1st. Send all submissions to Bevan Thomas at bevan@bevanthomas.ca. Anyone who lives in or has lived in BC is free to submit.
