Last weekend was 24hour comic book weekend. For those of you who don't know it's a challenge to create a 24 page comic book in 24 hours. Myself and a few other Brattleboro artist went to Montpelier . The folks at the Kellogg-Hubbard library hosted the event(and Trees and Hills). This was my first 24hr comic and not my last. I'm even thinking of doing a 12hr one on my own as soon as I can carve out the time. I manage to finish mine in 18hrs. Next time I'm going to take a nap and dinner brake. Things got a little silly towards the end. I dozed off a bit with pen in hand somewhere around hr16 too. It was great to be around all those other artist seeing what they were drawing, commiserating over drawing 2 left hands , taking too long on a panel or suddenly not being able to think of what happens next. What fun! I tell ya what drawing for 18 hr straight did nothing to quell my desire to draw, Sunday evening I did a mini painting.
This panel was drawn some where around hour 16.
I think i can blame my current poor heath to beiing awake for over 24hours. It was worth it 'cause I did it!
