Group Name and Theme

We’re thinking of changing our name from Emily Carr Comic Panel to something else. Shoot us an email with any suggestions by October 3rd. Leadership will decide on this one, but we’d love your input.

What you do get to vote on as a group is the theme for our first anthology. A theme is important to have consistency strung through the different stories in our anthology so it can have a kind of unity. This is not meant to be a limitation but rather a challenge! Good themes are pretty open ended so there’s lots of room for creative interpretation.

We will be accepting suggestion until September 30th at 11:59pm. Leave a comment here with any suggestions. The voting period will be from October 1st-October 3rd at 11:59pm. We’ll send you an email about it!

Themes that are already suggested are:

  • Monsters
  • Different Worlds
  • Superheroes
  • Dreams
  • Memories
  • Food
  • Art student stereotypes
  • Mystery
  • Potatoes
  • 7 sins
  • Vancouver
  • Delusions
  • Gifts
  • Emily Carr (the school)
  • Post-apocalyptic Earth
  • Adventures
  • Finding joy/small things in life
  • Paper
  • Wild
  • WILB

Group name suggestions

  • Emily Carr Comic Panel
  • Emily Carr Comic Guild
  • Comic Carr
  • Comics at Emily Carr

Give us some more!

Edit: As people comment, we’ll be adding them to the list above, so don’t worry if you see repeats!

    another suggested theme- Delusions. ( not the same as Dreams or superheroes- though it can incorporate that-) Artists are always known for seeing the world differently then other people, having an inside perspective on how a situation looks to the character in comparison to the viewer can be a very versatile theme, it can allow for various others to appear and be a recipe for various moods- from happy- funny- sad- ect.

    I’ve thought of another theme: Vancouver. Lots of room for individual interpretation, and maybe fitting for a Vancouver-based group.

    Yes there are birthday presents, but there are also gifts that you’re born with that we call talents, or even super powers.
    There are gifts that are curses like Pandora’s box.
    There are gifts to stop wars. Gifts to bribe judges. Gifts that never make it to someone who will never notice you.
    The idea of gifts can go a long way. I’d love to see how this theme could be interpreted.

  4. I like the idea of Emily Carr’s inaugural comic’s theme being about Emily Carr. Recounting an event whether humourous, unfortunate, noteworthy, or something mundane that happened in school — crit days are always um, interesting. It could be fiction or non-fiction and could be called, The Art of Art…or The Art of Emily Art, or something.

    Also, suggestion for the Group Name: Comic Carr.

    suggestion for group name: Comics at Emily Carr?
    theme suggestion: finding joy/small things in life.
    …but post apocalyptic theme sounds pretty sweet.
