Comic Fiesta

Comic Fiesta 2008 notes and announcements.

I wonder if I should join…

Sorry readers, another copy pasted from the Comic Fiesta blog. Hmm… I wonder if I should submit my works?

Introducing… the Portfolio Pavilion!

First, we had life drawing sessions for the curious.

Now, artists, game designers and just about anyone interested can bring their portfolios for instant industry feedback at Comic Fiesta 2008! We’ll have industry bigwigs from companies such as Animasia Studios, Imaginary Friends Studios of Singapore, Foldees, GempakStarz, Eden Animation, Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) and more to review your portfolios! In fact, you may even catch the interest of these industry players and, perhaps, get a shot at working with them! All you need to do is bring yourself, your portfolio, and be at our Portfolio Pavilion* to get feedback for your works!

And yes, it’s completely FREE! Just attend Comic Fiesta 2008 @ Sunway Convention Centre on December 20 and December 21, 2008! Remember to get your tickets for Comic Fiesta 2008 if you haven’t already!

Why are we doing this?
Comic Fiesta was created for fans, by fans. Once most of us joined the working force, we realised that it was difficult for us fans to continue doing what we loved, as there was a gap between what we wanted to do, and what we were being offered. The Portfolio Pavilion was conceived to bring key representatives and icons from Malaysia’s, and its neighbouring region, comic industry closer to the fans, bridging this gap. So bring your best works and show them what you’re made of!

You never know if you’ll be offered a job on the spot based on your portfolio and your skills!

*The Portfolio Pavilion times and location will be announced shortly

Nyaaa! To join or not to join? But hor… I’m a writer hor… HOW LA? T_T
