Well, it’s that time of year when artist take on the night (and morning) to create unique comic works. It’s time for the official 24 Hour Comic Book Day.
Your artist pals form the Cartoonist Conspiracy in San Francisco have joined forces with Comics Outpost to take on this unique challenge where artist work to complete a 24 page comic in 24 hours.
Crazy…..yes, of course. But an excellent challenge none the less.
On August 31st, 1990, Scott McCloud (Understanding Comics), originator of the 24 Hour comic concept, completed his first creative marathon. On April 24th, 2004 Nat Gertler organized the first 24HCD bringing together legions of participants all over the world in this annual event. In the years since, thousands have tried and many have succeeded in creating their own 24 hour comics.
So, wouldn’t you like to give it a try. If so, join our smelly/rude/caffeinated band of artist for a day/night of Cartooning fun.
How? We will be hosting up to 20 artists at our event, and we are requiring a $5 donation to reserve a space (this is going to Gary at CO to cover his expenses). To reserve a space, contact Doc Pop at (yoyogenius at gmail.com).
Time/Date: 11am Sat Oct 18th, 2008 to 11am Sunday Oct 19th
