Fresh Meat 2014 Online Registration

Hello Everyone!

Fresh Meat Online Registration Part 2 will take place this Sunday at 7:00pm!

Please read the following NEW instructions before proceeding to the form. Note that the form for Part 2 has been simplified and streamlined to make it easier to fill out without our in-person assistance, so it is DIFFERENT FROM THE FORM SEEN ON FRIDAY if you were there.

A) This form is for a single exhibitor to register for table space at the festival. Each exhibitor is allotted one-third of a table, a space of roughly 2' by 2.5'.

B) If you are exhibiting with a group, each member must register separately. You will be able to specify which exhibitors you would like to neighbor, so you can be placed with your groupmates. Please be prepared with an already agreed-upon name for your group.

C) Please make sure all information is accurate! Thank you!

For those that are familiar with the previous option given on Friday of sharing your third of the table with another person, PLEASE NOTE THAT THAT OPTION WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE ON THE ONLINE FORM.  However, you can still share if you'd like, but it does not have to go through the registration process; you may do that in private.  Hopefully this is a lot easier for everyone!

The person you share with does not need to register separately with a form.  They can still email us just like any other exhibitor with their author bio and a piece of their work so we can put it on the website!

The Online Registration Form will go live at exactly 7:00pm this Sunday, April 13th.

Please email us at cartoonallies@gmail.com or message us on facebook if you have any questions!  We will gladly answer them.

Those who register beyond capacity will be automatically placed on the waiting list, and we will email you within 24 hours if you are on the waiting list.

Good luck!

Operation: Art Trading Post!

Friday 2/1  6:30 PM  Room 703G

Greetings Allies!  This week, you will have the opportunity to do art trades with one another! 

Each person will come to the meeting bringing reference of one of their characters, clear enough for another person to draw from it.  We suggest you to try and compile the reference on a single sheet of paper, and to keep it to one character.  Multiple angles, detail shots, and even small blurbs about the character will help other people know more about them and make more interesting art for you.

More info below the cut!
