Comic Art Festival Kuala Lumpur is back again!

27 Jul

In case you’ve missed my tweets about this year’s Comic Art Festival Kuala Lumpur (CAFKL), it’s time to get hyped! CAFKL is back again this year for it’s 4th iteration and will be held at the Dewan Bunga Raya at Campbell Complex this weekend, 29th and 30th July!

As usual, most of the information about the event can be found on their official website and Facebook event page, but here’s a quick highlight reel of the event!

  • Unsure how to get to the event venue? Fret not, the organizers came up with a handy map which includes public transportation + walking route options for those of you who prefer to test out our brand new MRT system!
  • Event tickets (also known as CAFKL Passports) are going for RM15, which grants you access to the event on both days. These can be bought at the entrance to the event.
  • The artist booth map can be found inside each CAFKL Passport, but there’s no harm planning your route before the event since the map is already available online! You can check out each booth’s promotional art in the CAFKL event album or trawl through the #cafkl4 tags on social media to check out some promotional posts some booth owners have already put up!
  • The CAFKL Team put out some great CAFKL-themed merchandise this year too so prepare your wallets before hand, especially if you’re already planning to drop some cash at the artist booths.
  • There are some great talks lined up throughout the 2 days of the event featuring a variety of Malaysian talents, including seasoned veterans Kaoru and Keith of Gempak fame and newer webcomic hit artists Fishball and Sam Hepburn.cafkl4 event schedulePersonally I’m very interested in the talk titled Music and Math between Malaysian comics publisher Maple Comics with its artists, which looks to be a tug of war between the realities of marketing comics and the creative process/integrity.

And that’s it I guess! I’ll definitely be retweeting some artist booth promo posts on my Twitter account @indiedoodle leading up to the event (just one more day!), so if you’d like to get in on that, do follow me on Twitter!

Since I won’t be boothing this year, I’m hoping to be able to cover the event with a blog post, so fingers crossed! On that note: I’ll be attending two other events over the next two weekends outside of Malaysia, so I’m hoping to blog about them too. Will keep you guys posted!

See you guys at CAFKL!
