Create leadership team
Leader – Creates events and explores possibilities
Vice-Leader – Steps in when leader isn’t present, motivates group
Secretary – deals with paperwork and legal stuff, applies for grants
Treasurer – manages the money for events and workshops

– A theme or direction for the exhibition
– A date (a realistic one which takes into account works that must be made to suit the theme or to refine them/frame them suitably) (5-6 months)
– A confirmation of who would like to be in the exhibition based on the date set
– A preferred place to hold it
– And your budget range
Since the comics guild is a collective, it will be easier for you guys to gather funds and just tell me how much you want to spend on stuff, and we can discuss commission fees as well (though because I love you guys I won’t charge more than 10% of all sales made)
i’d also be happy to design your promo materials as well as part of my commissioned work but it depends on whether you want to design it yourselves and you can just ask me how it should be edited?
