If you are in London this Sunday, be sure to check out the East London Comics and Arts Festival. It looks to be a great event chocked full of excellent talent such as Tom Gauld, Luke Pearson and my good friend Iro Tsavala. Here’s a write-up from the ELCAF website:
“ELCAF 2012, the first East London Comics and Arts Festival will take place this year on the 17th of June in the fantastic venue The Village Underground in London’s Shoreditch. The first edition of the festival will aim to showcase the plethora of youthful talent in the comics and graphic art scene in London and the UK and also to bring something fresh to our locals by drawing talent from abroad to take part in the event, inviting exciting new collectives and publishers from Europe and the wider World.
Rammed with exciting programming for people of all ages, the events space will offer immersive encounters with the fascinating worlds of illustration and comics, while the fair will provide you with a unique opportunity to pick up affordable art and prints, the full gamut of comics and graphic novels and even the occasional hand made toy and t-shirt. The space is fully equipped with a refreshment booth with coffee, drinks and snacks and plenty of bathrooms for afterwards. What are you waiting for, ELCAF is going to be a blast!”
