• Welcome to ELCAF 2015!

    We are thrilled to announce the 4th East London Comics and Arts Festival. ELCAF is the annual festival dedicated to showcasing all things related to comics, graphic novels, sequential art, illustration and storytelling based in East London.

    ELCAF this year will span over two days on the 20th and 21st June from 10.00am – 7.00pm, with a full programme of events to be held across two new venues – The Laundry and SPACE in Hackney.

    ELCAF has the pleasure of inviting an internationally celebrated artist to create a unique identity every year. We are extremely honoured to announce Jillian Tamaki as this year’s artist-in-residence. Tamaki is a multi award-winning illustrator; her book This One Summer (written by Mariko Tamaki), was the winner of this year’s Printz Honor and is also the the first graphic novel to receive the Caldecott Honor (2015). We are incredibly excited to welcome such a talented and remarkable artist in joining us to celebrate ELCAF 2015. Tamaki’s exclusive design for the ELCAF 2015 poster is shown here (left), and will be available to purchase during the festival!

Limited Edition ELCAF Totes

We teamed up with the fantastic folk at ICON print to create a limited edition ELCAF tote bag! Our navy blue tote lovingly flaunted illustrations by our artist- in-residence, Jillian Tamaki, and was carefully screen-printed using a fresh pantone orange. It was the summer tote to be seen in! A limited number were printed and given away free over the two days of the festival.
