WHAT THE HECK IS THE ARTIST JAM ANYWAY?
The Krypton Comics Artist Jam began in September 2005 as a way for local comic book artists Max Riffner & Fredd Gorham to spend time at their favorite comics shop and draw. Originally, the idea was that these two artists would escape the boredom of their homes and spend a Saturday surrounded by what they love best while working on their various art projects. The owner of the store, Dean Phillips, had a similar idea: he had always envisioned having creative events in the shop as a way to promote comics culture to everyone. He had hoped to have an area in his shop where there would be art desks set up so that anyone who wanted to could come and site down, and make comics. He also wanted to have an art supply section in order to allow artists to purchase what they needed there at the shop for a good price. Eventually these three individuals got together, brainstormed and came up with the Krypton Comics Artist Jam.
For the first couple of months, it was just Fredd & Max hanging out, doodling and heckling the employees of the shop. Soon they were followed by their friend Bruce McCorkindale, who fancied getting out of the apartment once in a while. Soon after that, though, the word had gotten around about the event and artists from all over the local area started joining in on the fun. Now the Artist Jam is a regular event at Krypton Comics, and the rest is history.
THE FRIENDLY “LAYING-OF-SMACK”
Some of us have known each other for quite a while, and will tease each other on a regular basis. Just keep in mind we are familiar with each other and no real offense is ever meant. New folks to the Artist Jam will never be teased, and only when you become a regular will we start to include you in the traditional “laying-of-the-smack” … only if you wish to be involved in this tomfoolery.
Face it, some of us are just immature kids at heart.
