CA-LA-Comic-Arts-LA-Think-Tank-Desilu-Munoz-11

The first ever Comic Arts LA was held last Saturday at Think Tank Gallery. The one day only fest was aimed at promoting the appreciation of independent artists who make their own graphic novels, comics, books of photography or illustrations and many other mediums that help give Los Angeles a distinct art community.

CALA was organized by Jen Wang, Angie Wang, Iris Jong, and Jake Mumm, and were helped out by tons of volunteers who helped visitors navigate the packed event. Exhibitors included Beatrice The Biologist, Edie Fake, David Wolter, Sam King, Farel Dalrymple, Katherine Wirick, and Mark Todd. The event was a huge success, as hundreds of people flocked to Think Tank, and bought lots of books. What made the event even better was the fact that the exhibitors were willing to trade, and do drawings and signings in their books when requested. We’re definitely looking forward to CALA’s next event. L.A. Taco’s Desilu was there to capture the event. Keep reading for a full gallery of photos...
