Pronto Comics is pleased to announce its first fundraiser, entitled “Phrases to Pages” at Pearl Studios, 500 8th Avenue, on Saturday, July 28 from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. The event will feature contests, industry guests, refreshments, music, and more, including free drinks sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery and Casa Herradura Tequila. Bring your portfolios and scripts, as Pronto Comics will also be reviewing portfolios and scouting for new talent.
Contests will consist of writers and artists pairing off, being given a mystery phrase, and drawing and writing one comic book page based on the phrase. Special guests from the industry, including Simon Fraser and Ken Knudsten (plus more names to come) will judge the winner. Winners will receive prizes!
Please note, this event is 21+ only. Entry is only $10. Funds raised from Pages to Phrases will help in the operating costs of Pronto Comics and will allow Pronto Comics to continue to provide services for everyone working to develop their comic book career. RSVP on Facebook is requested but not required.
