ELCAF 2015 at The Laundry 2-18 Warburton Road, London, E8 3FN
20-21 June 2015
4th East London Comics & Arts Festival is dedicated to showcasing talent in illustration, design and small press publications.
Founded in 2012, ELCAF’s aim is to introduce and celebrate the community of artists and publishers that are pushing the boundaries in comics, illustration and sequential art. This year they offer an extended programme of events over the course of two days. In addition to the workshops and talks they will be running a new series of Masterclasses in collaboration with the House of Illustration.
ELCAF invites an internationally celebrated artist to create a unique identity for the year, and this year Jillian Tamakiis is the artist-in-residence. Tamaki is a multi award-winning illustrator; her book This One Summer (written by Mariko Tamaki), was the winner of this year’s Printz Honor and is also the the first graphic novel to receive the Caldecott Honor (2015).
Alongside Jillian Tamaki will be a roster of international artists giving talks and holding workshops and around 100 exhibitors including individual artists, publishers and collectives, all selected by the festival curators and organisers to each bring their own unique creative element to the day.
