Gallery up for Northern Sequential Art Competition entrants

Published On November 4, 2011 | By Joe Gordon | Awards, Comics

The Thought Bubble folks have posted up a gallery of the entrants for this year’s Northern Sequential Art Competition. I rather like that we can all have a glimpse of some of the entries – usually most of us don’t see the works entered into comics competitions until after the winners are announced, and not always then, so it’s pretty nice to be able to browse through some of the work online. Rasoul Hudda’s And Rest caught my eye (yes, I know, I am a sucker for kitty involved art, sue me – anyway, it looks like pretty familiar cat behaviour to me, check Rasoul’s site for more kitty strips):

and Cheun Wang’s entry about procrastinating about making an entry made me giggle:

Corban Wilkin’s entry was pretty interesting too (and I’m sure more than a few artists will look at it and have sympathy pangs; check Corban’s site for a lot more visual delights, including an interesting recent post on how to make comics):

There’s a whole pile of entries you can enjoy having a look at on the gallery, quite a good, diverse range of styles and subjects – obviously I can’t go over each and every one here, but hey, you have the gallery for that. Oh, okay, here’s one more that really caught my eye – Martin Simpson’s quite awesome looking Clicking Machine, a beautifully drawn Steampunk tale which gets extra brownie points from me for referencing the great Georges Méliès (on a related note check Martin’s site, which also has his entry for the Graphic Short Story Prize up, and it’s again quite, quite lovely – go check it out).
