Posted by: admin on October 28, 2011, No Comments

Local artists, art enthusiasts and/or comic book lovers who want to test their creativity and push their artistic limits are invited to a 12-hour Comic Thon sponsored by East Stroudsburg University’s Student Art Association.

The day of extreme cartooning will give amateur and professional cartoonists of any age 12 hours to challenge themselves to write, draw, and letter an entire 12-page comic story (one page per hour).

Comic book artist and David Mazure, assistant professor of art, will provide instruction and assistance for novices and amateurs.

Comic Thon will be held Friday, November 18 from noon to midnight in Studios 102 and 103 of the university’s Fine and Performing Arts Center, Normal and Marguerite streets, East Stroudsburg. Participants are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to the official start of the event.

The $5 registration fee, which includes all supplies necessary to create a comic book, is a donation to the Student Art Association. Participants also are welcome to bring their own supplies.

Some refreshments will be provided throughout the day, but participants should also bring their own food and drink.

Space limited to 40 participants. To reserve a space, e-mail David Mazure, the Student Art Association advisor, at: or call 570-422-3612 and leave a message.
