FREE COMIC BOOK DAY ALL STAR COMICS ARTIST ALLEY 2018 at 50 QUEEN ST



Anyone who has attended any of our previous FREE COMIC BOOK DAY events will know we love to use the day not just to introduce new readers to comics but also as a chance to showcase the incredible skills and talents of the local comic creating scene.
Each year we are extremely fortunate enough to host an outstanding line up of local creators, all ready to draw FREE sketches for you, while at the same time giving you the chance to meet and greet the creators and perhaps sample some of their work from our Artist Alley Merch Table!

Once again our Artist Alley line up is so huge we've had to move it out of the store to have enough room to host everyone! This year the All Star Artist Alley will found at the NEW location in the comfortable setting of Training Choice Lounge, found directly across the road from the store at 50 Queen St.

Entry to the Training Choice Lounge can be found on Queen St and has ramp access of wheelchairs and prams. It's a fantastic space and we are really excited to be able to present to you this incredible group of talented folks there on the day!


ROYAL CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL CHARITY TIP JARS 
AND  FUND RAISING

In the last couple of year's we've added a fund raising aspect to Artist Alley and thanks to the generosity of folks like yourself attending our event, we collected over $3500 for charity.

Paying tribute to the amazing and important work the people at the Royal Children's Hospital do, we'll be collecting donations for ROYAL CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL CHARITY in the form of "Tips" at the All Star Artist Alley.
The sketches are still very much for free but if you care to donate to this worthy cause, helping them continue their extremely important research and services by dropping a few gold coins into the ROYAL CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL TIP JARS that would be amazing!

And finally the moment you've been waiting for...

An fantastic line up of  artists offering up their time to draw for you! 
AMAZING and we couldn't be more thankfully for their time and effort.

SPECIAL NOTES FOR ARTIST ALLEY ETIQETTE. PLEASE READ!
-Please keep in mind that when you ask for your sketch that you might need some reference for the artist to draw from, so keep those smart phones handy!

-Please to not take advantage of the artists good and generous nature when getting sketches. Obviously one or two sketches for anyone coming on the day is more than fine but please remember that the event hasn’t been created to grow your original art collection and there will most likely be others there on the day that have yet to get one sketch.

-To assist in moderating the quantity of sketches, any adult attendees of the All Star Free Comic Book Day Artist Alley will be invited to get 2 FREE sketches if they wish, any children attendees are invited to get 3 FREE sketches if they are keen. 

-Also again in the spirit of the day if you are waiting for a sketch and a younger fan is waiting behind you for one too, it would be amazing if you can let them in front of you.

It goes without saying that this again is one of the most impressive line ups of artists outside a major convention. Again a massive thank you to the lovely folks at 50 Queen Street and of course none of this would of been possible without the time and skills of all the artists involved. We can not thank this fine folk nearly enough and we hope you enjoy the day and the art they provide for you!
