Don’t miss Six Characters, a one-day pop-up exhibition, as part of our free Comica Comiket Independent Comics Fair on Saturday November 2nd 11am to 7pm in the Platform Theatre Bar, conceived by Central Saint Martins PhD students Ahmed Jameel, Penelope Mendonça and John Miers. Here’s what they did:
Each artist wrote descriptions of two characters, including this suitably Halloweeny Cthulhu above. They were allowed to include information about the age and gender of the characters they described, but no information about their appearance.
Each artist then sent one of their descriptions to each of the other two artists. They all set to work creating a short strip using the two characters they had been sent, which had to conclude with at least one of them heading towards Santa’s Grotto in Harrods at 3pm on November 29, 2013 (the time and location at which the characters had to meet was provided by Dr. Roger Sabin.)
The final two pages, which attempt to resolve at least some of the various characters’ aims and objectives, were created collaboratively, “Drawn Together” style, with each artist continuing to draw the characters they had been given at the start of the project.
