Comic Cocoon: A Discussion Group for Comic Artists

Sunday, Jun 02 2019
16:00 - 17:00
Book club
location: Lighthouse

Book places here.

The Comic Cocoon is a moderated discussion group for comic artists working in the industry. In each session we will discuss a different topic, ranging from the art of comic-making to the intricacies of the freelancer lifestyle. It is an open forum where creators can discuss comics, industry and art with each other.

While social media grants us many opportunities to talk to people in our field, most comic artist work from home and don’t get to interact with each other in a physical space very often. The Cocoon is meant to create a physical community where questions, discussions and good-faith debates are encouraged.

Cocoon discussions are moderated by Shaderunners artist Alex Assan with the assistance of Inhibit creator Eve Greenwood. The group meets on the first Sunday of every month. Tickets are £3, available for purchase here or in the shop (to avoid eventbrite charges).
