Comix Jam with Eric Dyck and Carson Morton

11:15 AM - 12:00 PM

Join Southern Alberta cartoonists, Carson Morton and Eric Dyck, for a Word On The Street Comix Jam! A comix jam is a form of collaborative drawing, where different artists (you!) contribute to a comic-panel story. It is pretty simple: draw a panel and pass the page to someone new! Come draw with us! Drop in to add more in between presentations.

Eric Dyck

Eric Dyck is a cartoonist and art educator living in Lethbridge, AB. He has shared his love of cartoons and comic-storytelling in art galleries, museums, schools and libraries throughout Alberta and New Brunswick. Eric has been documenting his experiences and adventures in Southern Alberta through his webcomic, Slaughterhouse Slough. Eric uses his comic strip to share about the people that he meets, the stories that he hears and as a means of learning more about the history of Southern Alberta.



Carson Morton

Carson is a cartoonist and graphic-recorder based out of Magrath, Alberta. His playful humor often shows in his art… sometimes eliciting a chuckle, and sometime a groan. (Q: When is a super-villian like a baked potato? A: When they have been FOILED!)
