Central Saint Martins Student Winners of Comica Competitions!

Posted: April 18, 2013

As part of Comica’s engagement with Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, their talented students were set three challenging creative briefs over their Spring break. Prizes included books from publishers Nobrow and Thames & Hudson, portfolio reviews, a visit to Nobrow’s studio and a slot in the next Nobrow anthology, and three vouchers from Cass Art for £100 of art supplies. The entries poured in and after much deliberation, the judges have picked the following three winners.

Designer and illustrator Rian Hughes joined Team Comica in selecting Josh Saunders to win the Comica Festival poster brief (above) and his image is also being used on A5 postcards and other festival signage and promotion.

Nobrow set a brief to create a 4-page black-and-one-colour comic on the theme of ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’. Alex Spiro picked ‘The World’s New Clothes’ by ‘Doralice’, pen-name of Yu Dukai. Her entry will go on show at Comica Festival.

And Daniel Merlin Goodbrey invited students to collaborate with him on his cowboys vs. demons hypercomic exhibition, going on display at Comica in the Platform Theatre Gallery. He’s chosen Alex Hedworth’s six-frame strip as the winner. Come to CSM to see his whole strip and rest of the project, with guest contributions from Sean Azzopardi and Douglas Noble.

And a fourth £100 Cass Art voucher and other book prizes can be won in our Draw-A-Comic Competition, being judged by graphic novelist Woodrow Phoenix with Team Comica, on Saturday at the Festival. You have to be there to enter and to win. You must submit your one-page comic in person by 5.30pm (no digital or email entries). You can create your strip in the White Lab or at Cass Art’s own stand where they will have paper on easels. Winner announced 6.30pm.
