The first Comic Jam of SPRING is coming up at the end of the month! Theme: Doodles
Sometimes doodles can inspire a cool story, character or situation. Even geometric phone doodles can be fun launching creative thoughts. Bring a doodle (even a scribble on a page) to inspire a comic panel or story. Or doodle at the event. We’ll see what cool things pop up from the subconscious doodle-brain n_n

All artists will be expected to be present in their partner business during the opening for a minimum of 2 hours. Thanks to our sponsors and the City of Ottawa, all artists will receive an honorarium for their participation.

This project is organized by the Remixed Collective (RC). We are an volunteer, Ottawa- based not-for-profit art collective, and our mission is to nurture Ottawa’s diverse arts communities. If you have any questions about the submissions process, get in touch via email: remixedcollective@gmail.com
