Anthology Anyone?

Is anyone interested in pooling our work together and creating an anthology together for next weeks Comiket event? Most of you second years should technically be finished your work I think (the deadlines monday right >.>?) and I know that Johan, Debbie and I (and Lee I think) have stuff we could put in...It'd be a good showcase for your work...Apparently Murray has mentioned it to Chiu but I don't really know how to get intouch with him >.>....

Yea i want to put together an anthology of our graphic novel work (for 2nd years, think chiu wants to seperate the 3rd years?), if possible for comica? However if its gonna look rushed then i'm happy to at least get it done before christmas as i'm currently trying to get some of our stuff in Nostalgia (If anyone doesn't know what this is it's a wicked comic shop around the corner from oceania!)and anthology would be wicked to sell/promote our work!

Only thing is would prefer if it was black and white, for consistency plus the obvious low cost of printing? But yea let me know if you're interested!

Well I can take care of the 3rd years, though there are only 4 of us at most >.>...so it'll probably be err...minimal XP I'd be willing to sort it, but like Murray said black and white would be better because colour is so expensive to print...we can talk about it on tuesday but that's cutting it kinda close to the actual event...it wouldn't take more than a day to put together if everyone has work though!

I know Nostalgia, I live just round the corner...Have you been to forbidden planet yet? I could go to them if you want! And work my geeky charms >.>

haha ok, i retract my statement, got confused, so wicked a group anthology it is!! Yea agreed, it is calling it close, but as you say if we have the work, it should hopefully be a wang-bang case of re-sizing work/running order/printing?

Well i tried forbidden planet but it may be worth following up as the guy i spoke to looked a lil wet behind the ears and scared when i showed him my book, so yea please do! i think if we keep pestering them they might come round to the idea of putting up some independent stuff, aka us!

Woo this sounds amazing! Definitely count me in!

When we need work polished by at the latest? I should be able to get Shatterface done by Tues/Wed without killing myself!

Carby you's in if you produce the goodies!!! as I need to too!!

DeadMenDontBite said...

I'd say by tuesday...It depends how we're all planning to do it o.o!! Who is putting all of it together and such...afterall I don't wanna steal it from Murray if he wants to do it XP!

haha i'm not looking for any glory here, lol i suggested the idea because i thought it would be our best chances rather than all individually trying to sell our own, as they would probably be too small and i thought an anthology would be fun! Are you guys in 3rd year free to come in on the monday as was gonna talk about it then, so i mean that doesn't mean you have to have it finished by monday, but we could talk about it then and decide collectively what is it we want?

myeyeisonfire said...

it'd be good to kill two birds with one pen, and that is fulfill your project requirements and submit to the anthology, however if some of you want to suddenly do a completely alternative graphic story, then that's good too! Even a collaborative story!

myeyeisonfire said...

p.s. Monday is a good day for everyone to discuss!

DeadMenDontBite said...

I wont be back until monday afternoon sadly o.< my bus gets in at 2.15 so i wouldn't get to uni until 2.30/45...I don't mind coming in as soon as I'm back...just not sure any one will be around then :P But I could always try and get the third years stuff together for tuesday and we could meet to sort it or something...I'm not sure!

well i imagine i'll be kicking around Gosta til about 5, so if you do still wana come in to find out what we talked about then feel free, otherwise i'm sure we'll update the blog later on that afternoon so you feel up to date! But otherwise yea well if we say who can make it on monday, talk then, but i wouldn't feel left out jess if you can't make it as it'll probably mainly consist of talking about whatever we talk about here to whoever doesn't know?

Chiu in regards to sorting out the size difference, it may be difficult as i had to change my layouts to do the jump from the observer to cest bon... i mean the layout i'm using atm for cest bon, is 20cmx26cm? It'll probably change on the individual though? As we'll probably do it smaller than 20x26? I'm not sure it's a toughie, think it'll become more obvious when we see everyone's work and be able to see what will work and won't?

I'll be having a think over the weekend!

myeyeisonfire said...

think ratios! I should but too busy! leaving it to you to figure out ratio differences - we may be surprised and it could be small??

DeadMenDontBite said...

I might try to get in but its already been a pretty knackering weekend and its not even over yet...I may need to go home and pass out after the 4 hour bus journey >.>" I'll see on monday, if not, you cuold post up thoughts and stuff on monday night and we could discuss it (3rd years I mean) on tuesday...all of our work I think is sort of A3 (or a variation that can be put to A3) I'm not great with sizing...but we all worked towards the observer so I think the 3rd years will work!
