#artcore are proud to present a new exhibition of comics by young artists, titled “Opposable Thumbs”!

We received many submissions from young artists, graphic designers and comic makers from Scotland and beyond, aged 13 – 25, for a new quarterly comic compendium, “Opposable Thumbs”, which we self publish at our newly opened print studio, Out of the Blueprint. The first edition’s theme is “New”.

The comics are compiled and printed by #artcore trainees during January, with selected work also being printed up and exhibited for two weeks at Out of the Blue Drill Hall in Edinburgh from the 9th to the 29th of February. All selected participants will get 10 comic books, which they can sell for 3 pounds.

The Launch Event will be on the 6th of February at the Central Library in Edinburgh. For more information: https://www.facebook.com/events/973877946013431/
