Last year a group of Extran Heroes got together at a cafe and shared their wacky mishaps, adventures, and escapades using paper and markers. This year, as with most things during this second go-round in Spain, let’s do it bigger and better.
All art invited to participate in this collaborative art project by creating their very own ¡Extran Hero! entry. We all have wild experiences and stories to share from our many months overseas, so come share them with readers, here in Spain and back home. Draw your very own ¡Extran Hero! entry to be featured in a special section on the blog.
No art skills required, though of course a plus. All materials will be supplied, but please bring any you would like to use. Come one, come all!
Date: Saturday, June 1st
Time: 4 to 7 p.m.
Place: J and J Books and Coffee
calle Espíritu Santo 47
28004 Madrid, Spain
Visit the Create-Your-Own ¡Extran Hero! Day! Page in the tabs at the top of this blog to see photos from last year’s event, to give you an idea of what to expect.
If you participated in last year’s event, please do come again and share the wisdom acquired from your second year. And if this is your first time, we welcome fresh creativity from a new cast of characters!
Don’t let any lack of drawing skills stop you from participating! It doesn’t matter how much art you put onto the page, so long as it’s your original work.
DIGITAL SUBMISSIONS also accepted!
…from those in Spain, the United States, and anywhere else. Here are the guidelines:
– Create an original ¡Extran Hero! entry, in more or less the same format as the online comics: the ¡Extran Hero! text in the upper-left hand corner, your title in the upper-right (no need to worry about numbering).
– Draw in an unlined spiral notebook or on a white piece of paper and take two photos:
1) a horizontal photo of the page against a backdrop in a well-lit place, preferably outdoors.
2) a photo you holding up your submission
