Home for Hoboes

The 700 Hoboes project previously mentioned on this blog a number of times has a lovely new home…

Over 400 hobo drawings have been submitted to the project at this point. You can still participate if you’re interested. The project has been mentioned a number of times on the popular blog, and is a good way to get your stuff seen by tons of people (I’m sure it will be mentioned again at the project’s completion).

In the midst of the SF 24 Hour Comic Day

So, we started with ten cartoonists at 5:45 pm all crammed into Craig’s apartment.

At about 7pm we moved our get together to Muddy Waters to meet join the normal Cartoonist Conspiracy get together (which consisted of ; Jeff Plotkin). That’s were we started losing people, sore backs, not enough sleep, yadda yadda. So it looks like there are 6 of us going the full 24, one of those is only focusing on a 7 page project, so… yeah.

Brian is doing something about a Fairy that gets lost in the city.

Tanya is doing a 7 page web comic about Jack and Daxter.

Craig (with a K) is doing a “space opera” comic. He doesn’t like to talk about it though.

Rio is trying a stream of conscious comic.. It has a roach in it.

I’m doing a 1001 Arabian Nights type comic…

24 Hour Comic Jam

This Thursday at 5pm, a group of 4 San Francisco Cartoonists will start a 24 hour comic jam. Similar to the super big mega official 24 Hour Comic Day that happens every year, except locally organized.

We have two people signed up for sure, and would like to host two more local cartoonists for the marathon, anyone interested can contact

This even will not supersede the October 7th 24 Hour Comic day event at Last Gasp Publishing, but is just something to tide some of us over until then.
