Kendal, 25th August 2015: The full line-up of Canadian creators at this year's Lakes International Comic Art Festival (16th – 18th October) is now confirmed and includes Kate Beaton, Darwyn Cooke and Kathryn and Stuart Immonen – who will be joining many others in the dedicated Canadian Comics Lodge at The Shakespeare Centre over the event-packed weekend.

 Working in partnership with the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, LICAF's exciting events line up this year includes appearances by Estelle Bachelard (aka Bach, creator of It’s Hard To Be A Girl), Kate Beaton (Hark, A Vagrant and Step Aside, Pops!), Darwyn Cooke (DC: The New Frontier and Parker: The Hunter), Michael DeForge (Lose, Ant Colony, First Year Healthy, Very Casual and designer on the Cartoon Network's Adventure Time), Stuart Immonen (Star Wars, Captain America, Russian Olive to Red King and All-New X-Men), Kathryn Immonen (Moving Pictures, Operation: SIN, Spider-Verse and Russian Olive to Red King), Samuel LeBlanc (Perfume of Lilacs), Conor McCreery (Kill Shakespeare and Sherlock Homes vs. Houdini) and Seth (Palookaville, George Sprott)

 Along with appearances on comic panels and in workshops over the weekend, the Canadian guests will take up residence in Kendal's Shakespeare Centre, close to the main Brewery Arts Centre venue for Festival events and the free Comics Clock Tower, which will host a huge line-up of British and international creators, publishers and retailers.

 Darwyn Cooke, making his first ever visit to the UK, will also introduce a special screening of the 2008 film Justice League: New Frontier, screening at the Brewery Arts Centre on Saturday morning (17th October). adapted from the award-winning DC: The New Frontier he created, which effectively captures his gritty writing style and powerful artwork on screen.

 "Festival's offer the chance for young creators to meet other artists whom they share a sensibility with," says guest Seth. "This is so important when you are young and is probably one of the things I am most envious of the younger artists.

 "There were few opportunities in my youth to meet other young artists with the same tastes and ambitions. It was a small pool then. It’s nice to see so many young artists meeting and having fun together at these festivals."

Game Music Connect

Leading Music Execs and Supervisors to Explore New Frontiers of Music in Video Games at Southbank Centre, London on September 15

 LONDON, United Kingdom (July 27, 2015) - Game Music Connect organizers today revealed new sessions for the third annual international video game music conference which returns to The Purcell Room at London's Southbank Centre on September 15. Game Music Connect welcomes Director Of Music for Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) Worldwide Studios, Chuck Doud as opening keynote speaker for 2015. Other new sessions announced include video demonstrations and discussion with Sony's in-house Project Morpheus music team regarding the aesthetics and functionality of in-game music scores for Virtual Reality (VR). Tickets for Game Music Connect 2015 are available now at

The new sessions to be announced for Game Music Connect 2015 include:

One of the globe's most important video game music executives, Chuck Doud leverages over two decades of experience in music composition, production, technology and business. His remit includes such beloved PlayStation titles as The Last Of Us, Journey, Uncharted, InFamous, and God Of War - industry-leading in quality and innovation. He brings a unique game music world view to this year's Game Music Connect keynote as he discusses Sony's current and future visions for video game scoring and celebrates the vital role music plays in today's and tomorrow's interactive entertainment experiences, together with the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Speaker: Chuck Doud (Director Of Music for Sony Computer Entertainment America Worldwide Studios)

Over the last twenty years, rightly or wrongly, many video game creators have sought to apply the grammar and function of film music to an interactive medium somewhat at odds with its linear cousin - with varying degrees of success. Games where the player is active protagonist in a real world gameplay scenario, yet is frequently relegated to passive viewer by cut scenes can be particularly thorny. What is music for; who is music for? And now, the discomfort of linear music concepts which don't always sit well with interactive experiences is heightened in the brave new world of Virtual Reality. Sony's in-house Project Morpheus music team started over with a clean slate and have conducted a series of trials regarding the aesthetics and functionality of scores for VR, seeking to design implementation systems which harness the inherent power of music without disturbing user immersion. Using 'show and tell' they will demonstrate what they have found to work so far, and explain why.

Alastair Lindsay (Music Production Manager, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Creative Services Group)
Joe Thwaites (Composer & Music Production Assistant, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Creative Services Group)
Chairs: John Broomhall and James Hannigan

More sessions will be announced shortly. Visit for all the latest news.

Game Music Connect is founded by multi-award winning game and TV composer James Hannigan and celebrated game audio director, composer and industry commentator John Broomhall - who, with over one-hundred AAA game credits between them, joined forces in 2013 to create Game Music Connect in order to celebrate and explore the music of video games.

Now in its third year, Game Music Connect is for aspiring and professional composers of all backgrounds and those interested in learning about the art and craft of creating today's cutting edge video game soundtracks - featuring talks, practical demonstrations and round-table discussions with some of the world's leading artists, innovators and decision makers in the world of music for video games.

Game Music Connect 2015 is proud to be partnered with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts and its sponsors include Sony PlayStation, COOL Music, Spitfire Audio and Audiokinetic. For more information and to purchase tickets for Game Music Connect 2015, visit:

BUMP up topic

Hoping for news.
A huge line up of both British and globe-spanning international comics talent is being lined up for this year's Lakes International Comic Art Festival, taking place 16th – 18th October 2015.
 International guests announced so far are award-winning Canadian artist Darwyn Cooke, Simpsons Comics artist Bill Morrison (thanks to the National Cartoonists Society in the US), Boulet, Winshluss, Benoit Peeters and Antoine Cossé and Japanese Shojo manga artist Akiko Hatsu - with still more to come.

 Announced British guests include Guardian cartoonist Steve Bell, 24 Hour Marathon organiser and artist Dan Berry; graphic novelist Joe Decie, who is working on a longform project thanks to funding from the Lakes Festival; Oliver East, author of titles such as Trains Are Mint, who is working on another project with the Festival following the success of The Homesick Truant's Cumbrian Yarn; internationally-acclaimed cartoonist Hunt Emerson, creator of Calculus Cat;  author David Gaffney, who has recently been working with Dan Berry on a new graphic novel, The Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head; award winning comics writer Kieron Gillen; and UK-based stitcher and prolific tea drinker Felt Mistress AKA Louise Evans, who has created a range of one-off bespoke creatures with her partner, illustrator Jonathan Edwards, including Poblin, the Festival's mascot; and the internationally-acclaimed illustrator and graphic novelist Dave McKean.
 The Lakes International Comic Art Festival is the only one of its kind in the UK, taking place in one of the UK’s most beautiful areas – the English Lake District in the North West of the country, in the market town of Kendal. Modelled on European-style festivals, such as Angoulême in France, it takes over the whole town for a weekend of comic art. Its aim is to celebrate the whole spectrum of comic art, inspiring existing comic art fans and creators and, it hopes, generating new audiences and creators too. It invests in creators through a commissioning programme and has an emphasis on developing international collaborations.

 The hugely successful 2014 Festival in Kendal featured a stellar cast of both British and international creators and a number of special exhibitions, and attracted thousands of fans young and old to the Lake District town.

 The Festival’s dedicated organisers are determined to build on last year’s visitor numbers still further, reflecting their aim to deliver a truly European-style comics festival involving the whole of the local community and visitors in a truly unique comics experience.

 Festival-connected events in the run up to the 2015 weekend include a partnership with the Friends of Lancaster Library for Lancaster Comics Day (Sunday 14th June), which will see the announcement of the winners, and the publication of the “Lost in Space” digital anthology June, which is being produced in partnership with Titan Comics and will include a cover by Festival patron Sean Phillips. Announced guests at that event include comic writer Andy Diggle, Eddie Robson and Tim Quinn, artist Dave Taylor and editor John Freeman.
Orbit Books launches Fantasy Writing Workshop with Karen Miller

The international science fiction and fantasy publisher Orbit Books will be launching an online fantasy writing workshop this summer, hosted on It will be led by Karen Miller - a million-copy bestselling author who rose to fame with her debut The Innocent Mage, and whose most recent release is the critically acclaimed epic fantasy The Falcon Throne.

The free week-long event, which starts on 27th July 2015, will invite aspiring authors to take part in a communal online “write-along” challenge, during which they will each be encouraged to pen their own sample of a new fantasy novel. They will also be invited to submit this sample into a competition at the end of the week.

Miller will be kicking off the writing workshop by setting a writing challenge for aspiring fantasy authors on 27th July, and will be providing advice and words of encouragement throughout the week. She will also taking part in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session, during which time participants will be able to put their own questions on writing to her.

Miller said: “One of the hardest things about starting a writing career is the feeling that you're alone, that nobody understands what you're going through, and that it's really hard to figure out how to do it right! That's why I'm so excited to share a little of what I've learned since I wrote my first fantasy novel. It's been a wild ride, these past few years, and if a new writer can be helped by something I've said, it will make all the hard work worthwhile.”

Any aspiring authors interested in taking part should follow @OrbitBooks on Twitter for details and updates.
