Today is 24 Hour Comics Day (It also happens to be International Sloth Day, but we won't get into that right now). It is a worldwide event which challenges people to create a 24 page comic book in 24 hours. Many Comic Shops host people to do this, and people are also encouraged to do it from wherever they choose.
Since I couldn't make it last year, I wanted to try it this year. Met up with a couple friends downtown and we tried it out. It's been an awful long time since I've drawn a comic book...and I only got 7 pages in about 8 hours (Note to self...it's a lot easier to pump out pages when there are only a few panels per page).
My strategy was to do a stream-of-consciousness story, where I just begin and let the characters take it wherever it may go; opposed to outlining a full story from the start and trying to make the whole thing.
Anyway, below is what I have as of now. My hand has become a twisted claw at the moment so I'm taking time away from it. Might add to it later. We'll see.
Apologies for the poor quality - no scanner, just taken with my camera. Try to ignore the lens distortion and non-uniform lighting. And as always, click for a larger view:
Overall was a fun exercise. A good way to get in some quick drawing/storytelling practice. Was good to sit down with paper and pencil for the first time in a long while :)
Next thing will be the my yearly Jack-O-Lantern contact sheet, so be on the lookout for that.
