caciii

This is a public invite for all local artists to visit Alpha Comics on Wednesday October 9th. The challenge is to create the best cover for The Walking Dead #115. You will be given one copy of the The Walking Dead #115 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 work on and submit their cover. Art must be done in the store. Each submitted cover will be scanned and uploaded to alphacomics.ca. On Thursday October 10th, entries will viewed by a panel of judges. Prizes will be awarded to the top three covers as decided by pro artists C.P. Willson III, Riley Rossmo and Alpha Comics shop owner Chris Humphries.(Guest judges will not be appearing in the store, they will be sent scans of the entries to view.)
