Cartoonist Conspiracy Jam tonight!

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

The Minneapolis Cartoonist Conspiracy meets at 6:30 until 10:00 the first Thursday of every month at Diamond’s Coffee Shoppe in Northeast.

Generally, we draw collaborative “jam” comics, socialize and drink caffeinated beverages. Afterwords, we often have uncaffeinated beverages somewhere else.

The meetings are open to anyone who wants to draw with us, and the results are posted here sooner or later (and sometimes even printed).

SAP album art / September 08

This month’s album art is courtesy of DungeonWarden. Bring your favorite beverage and see you this evening at 10PM EST on

Here are some of the topics of interest we’ll be talking about in our 8th episode:

  • Our Favorite Tools / Tips / Tricks (aka What’s in YOUR arsenal?)
  • Starting a strip ( should one start with random gags and progress towards story arcs? i.e. what’s the best approach? )
  • The Artist / Writer Balance (does excelling in one detract from the other?)
  • Marketing
