After a few weeks of designing, building and networking, we're excited to finally launch the full Graphic Scotland website and community site.
You can sign up to our community site
independently, or by using your Facebook ID. Here, you can find out about news and events, from Graphic Scotland and others. You can share discussions about anything in our forum area.
If you're a writer or visual artist looking for a collaborator to make excellent comics with, join our Find a Collaborator
group. It’s a good way to run into other, like-minded folk.
We're also running a series of 'Comics creators and cake
' events where writers and artists can get together in person. The first one will be at brand new bookshop Pulp Fiction in Edinburgh on 30 November.
We're constantly developing our plan of activities and, most of all, we want to make sure we're being responsive to what people are looking for. If there are any activities you'd like to see Graphic Scotland involved in, then discuss them on our forum
, or email us directly
How we got here
We have so many people to thank for their help. Our logo designer, Emily Fraser
, has given us an effective and simple logo and the inspiration to design a nice, clean looking website.
Ever Dundas, Aly Mathers, Paul Wilson and Silvia Barlaam got together to illustrate our own Graphic Scotland comic, which will be online in the next few days.
The Edinburgh City of Literature
folk, Anna Burkey and Ali Bowden, invited us into their warm circle of writing chums, where we paddled happily in a sea of wine and good conversation. We have been inspired by the friends we made there and partly took the idea of a cross-disciplinary networking event from their excellent monthly Writer’s Salon.
We aim to publish the best of short comics by Scottish creators. We open for submissions in 2012.
