R.A.I.D. studios expanding!

R.A.I.D. (aka the Royal Academy of Illustration & Design) is planning to expand their current studio to a larger space in the new year. the current studio is home to 7 talented artists; a peppering of the who’s who of the local comic and illustration scene. current members include Francis Manapul, Kalman Andrasofszky, Marcus To, Scott Hepburn, Willow Dawson, Andy Belanger, and Ramon Perez.

The current studio space is about 800sq ft and the new space is closer to 2000sq ft.

Each member will have a 200sq ft space to utilize, a common area with couches, tv, and so forth to just chill out or interact with clients, and a small kitchen, with fridge, mircrowave and toaster, with island is there to eat in should you grow tired of the numerous restaurants and cafes in the area.

The monthly cost of the studio space per member is $300, which also includes internet and telephone.

Speaking of which, the studio is located in Little Italy, just a few blocks west of the Bathurst and College St. intersection.
