You Are Here

ACT Comic Meet will be taking part in the 2014 You Are Here festival, and there are a couple of ways for you to get involved!

(Please contact for more details or to register your interest.)

1. Art Workshop
On 23 March 2014, Sam Cavanagh will be running a half-hour workshop on drawing comics from a script, particularly focusing on layouts and thumbnails. In the workshop, participants will work on laying out and thumbnailing a one-page script.
We are currently looking for:

  • a suitable one-page script (ASAP)
  • some artists to do their take on the layouts/thumbnails of the script; including 2-3 artists who can attend the workshop on the day. (Let us know if you’re interested ASAP; Final artwork to be received by 10 March 2014.)

All the images (and the script) produced for this project will be compiled into a book and made available online. All artists and writers will be acknowledged as the creators of their work and we will provide links to your portfolio site/comics.

2. Process videos
We are looking for comics creators who would like to produce a 2-3 minute youtube video about their creative process, which will be made available throughout the You Are Here festival and promoted to the festival’s online audience. Videos can be about any part of your creative comic-making process (but must be family-friendly, so please wear pants or don’t film below the waist).

If you do not want to produce a video on your own, but would like to be involved, let us know and we’ll happily put you to work on a group project!

The You Are Here festival is a community event, and is unable to offer remuneration for your participation. However, they have kindly provided us with a table to sell your merchandise and are happy for us to promote our individual/group projects at workshops and in our videos. 

In previous years, the average attendance at workshops across the week was 70 people; and their website received thousands of views from around the world each day. 

If you have any questions, or if you would like to register your interest, please contact
