ELCAF 2014, the third East London Comics and Arts Festival, is back! Taking place on June 14th at a special new location in East London, the third festival will again be showcasing the plethora of youthful talent in the comics and graphic art scene in London and the UK. It will also bring something fresh to our locals by drawing talent from abroad to take part in the event, inviting exciting new collectives and publishers from Europe and the wider world.
And the big news?! Wait for it… This year’s artist-in-residence is none other than the wonderful Chris Ware! Three is certainly the magic number as Ware is sure to bring a bit of sparkle to this year’s festivities. Keep your ears to the floor and eyes to the skies for Ware’s 2014 ELCAF poster.
The line-up of events will be announced in due course but for now rest assured that it will be rammed with all sorts of immersive encounters with the fascinating worlds of illustration and comics.
Last but not least, we are now accepting submissions from all you talented collectives and publishers! The deadline is the 10 February 2014, so you have just over a month to show us what you’ve got.

Looking forward to seeing who will be taking part this year!
