Nobrow Press proudly announces Year 2 of the East London Comics & Arts Festival (ELCAF), a relaxed, accessible, interactive day of exhibitors, artists, talks and workshops plus a bar and street food - all showcasing the best of indie comics and graphic art.
Established and independent publishers and makers will again be showing their latest work and new for 2013 will be a programme of curated talks and events for all ages.
A new space, the historic York Hall in Bethnal Green, offers period charm and extra room to get creative, so come and meet artists and writers, check out a new wall mural from the festival’s artist in residence, hot New York illustrator Andy Rementer and try your own hand at sequential art with super-talented tutors on hand. Kids can look forward to a morning full of events just for them, too.
Even casual collectors are in luck: shopping for comics is a fun way to collect quality work from cutting-edge artists with all the variety, cool factor and DIY ethos of street art – without breaking the bank.
At ELCAF, visitors will find a stylish, friendly and welcoming crowd; even visitors new to comics can be sure that ELCAF curators’ carefully selected exhibitors will have hand-picked books, prints, posters and collectible magazines on offer they’ll want to take away and treasure.
