Group Info

This is a group dedicated to bringing together cartoonists and comic artists (manga artists and illustrators are also welcomed) from around Australia.

This is a place to show our dedication and improve our art styles towards comics. A place where we can share our perspectives, ideas and individuality as comic artists. A place where everyone can meet residents of Australia who are aspiring to become comic artists themselves.

Residents of Australia are welcome to join this comic community.

Hello members of OZ Comics!

It has been a while since our last journal post, so I thought it was time to refresh with an update.
I’d like to firstly remind visitors reading this and thinking of joining that acceptance into the group is for Australians only. For non-Australians, you may follow the group if you are interested in receiving notices on uploaded comics, however your join request will be declined. For Australian deviants, we like to see at least one comic submission in your gallery to also be accepted here. This is an Australian Comic group after all.

So, why is it that my membership was declined?
(and please do not say it's I'm not Australian).

((because i am))

Hi there Valaurelius!
Apologies for not stating a reason as to why your request was declined. The reason is most likely because, as well as being an Australian group, this is also a group for comic art, and we did not find any comic art in your gallery.
However, thank you for the initial interest to join OzComics!

Hiya - just a quick shout out to any NT based deviants! I've started a new group to publicise NT art events, it's called 'NT-Happenings'. Swing by if you're interested! :wave:

Hi all fellow Aussie artists. I have started a new Aussie based art forum and really want to build a community of Aussie artists so we can interact and discuss favourite artists, events, classes, suppliers and all things art as well as discussing and sharing your techniques.
All levels and types of art are more then welcome - Would love to have a Comic and Anime section on the forum.
