AN EVENT FOR ARTISTS BY ARTISTS
We started a company Mudtoonz Comics & Cartoons. The souls behind it were Mudassar Butt, Shagufta Butt. We started group shows and solo exhibitions with the help and support of (Ret) Major ejaz Mustafa Zaidi director of the Defence Public Library. Most of the events conducted were emphasizing literature and education and individualistic empowerment. After 2 successful years of exhibitions of cartoons and comic art. The idea was pitched by Mudassar Butt to have the first of its kind event in the Library coined as Comic Con PK 2014. Its main purpose and which still is to create a softer image of Pakistan and its youth and addressing it to the local and global media as such.
After quite a lot of research, hard work and passion we were able to organize Comic Con PK 2014. During our planning stage a number of cartoonists, animators, film makers, writers, game developers, musicians joined in, show was opened on 27-28 th December 2014. It turned out to be a commercial success and became an excellent opportunity to interact with fellow cartoonist, experts and novices. Almost about 2000+ people visited the 2 day convention. Many new ideas and concepts were discussed. One of them being copyright law in Pakistan and the formation of a Pakistani Cartoon Channel hence Pakistan Cartoon Channel Initiative was founded on that day. http://www.facebook.com/PCCI2015 .
