Camosun Comic Arts Festival 2019

Poster Designs

Every year for CCAF a new poster design is created. From 2013-2017 posters were created by the co-creator of the Comics & Graphic Novel program, Ken Steacy. In 2018, the torch was passed to one of the programs alumni.

2019 Poster Design - Georgia Ma

Hey, Georgia here! I was given the pleasure of creating the CCAF poster for 2019. It was done in inks and watercolours with a healthy dose of Photoshop in post-production. The idea behind it stemmed from those commercials you'd see on TV of some poor shmuck just going about their business when a cartoon character pops out of nowhere to pedal a fun and often colourful product. It seemed to work great for them so why not for us?

Georgia Ma graduated the Camosun Comics & Graphic Novels program in 2018. She was the recipient of the 2018 Pam Shemilt - Island Blue Print Comics and Graphic Novels Award.

This is an acrylic ink drawing with digital colors, and it contains at least one lame pun, a ball of fluff, hand-drawn typefaces, and a cool eagle wearing sunglasses.

Ken has donated his existing intellectual property for the poster, but changed the polymorphic alien from a cool blue to Camosun green!

This year we repurposed the cover for an Edutainment (entertaining comics in service of education, instruction, & advocacy) book on physics that Ken had created.

Wanting to try something different this year, the students did drawings of the characters from their comics, which Ken then inked and digitally coloured.

We rebranded the event as 4C, and program co-creator Ken Steacy added characters by our guest mentors to an illustration originally done for a book on Canadian comics.
