Come to Score and Script Santa’s Ghetto at C4RD

Posted: December 3, 2012

As part of Comica Festival’s ongoing Score and Script Exhibition at C4RD (Centre for Recent Drawing), we will be running a “Santa’s Ghetto” fair day, where the artists featured in the show will be exhibiting work that will also be available for purchase.

Interested in meeting the creators of comics and supporting independent publishers, and looking for reasonably priced gifts for Christmas? Then come along to the fair day on Saturday 8th December, where you will be able to buy comics, graphic novels, zines, objets d’art, hand made box sets of mini-comics, bags, badges, cards, signed prints and art du jour!

Score and Script Exhibition:

In comics, visual form and narrative content constantly inform and imply one another. But what could be revealed about the process of visual storytelling if an attempt were made to perform that separation? In this exhibition devised by cartoonist & researcher John Miers and co-curated by Megan Donnolley, 23 cartoonists, working either from an entirely verbal description of a single-page story, or a visual diagram based on that same page, present a unique set of answers to that question.

Artists: Andrew Godfrey, Andy Bleck, Andy Poyiadgi, Dan Berry, Daniel Fennings, Daniel Merlin Goodbrey, David O’Connell, Douglas Noble, Elliot Baggott, Gary Northfield, James Hickman, John Cei Douglas, John Miers, John Riordan, Karen Rubins, Kripa Joshi, Mike Medaglia, Richy K. Chandler, Sally-Anne Hickman, Sean Azzopardi, Stuart Medley, Tanya Meditzky, Woodrow Phoenix.
