Calgary Artist Challenge II

copic
This is a public invite for all local artists to visit Alpha Comics on Wednesday August 14th. The challenge is to create the best cover for Marvel’s Infinity #1. You will be given one copy of the Infinity #1 blank variant. Then at the store, use your art skills to create a cover that will make jaws drop. Bring your own supplies. There is no restriction with medium, only that the art has to be on the blank variant. Alpha Comics will be open 10am – 9pm that day and artists can visit anytime on that date to submit their cover. Art must be done in the store. Each submitted cover will be scanned and uploaded to alphacomics.ca. On Thursday August 15th, a poll will be opened for people to vote on which comic cover they think is the best. Prizes will be awarded to the top three covers as voted by the public.

Why should you participate?
This event will showcase local art, supporting the local artist community.
