This weekend I'll be participating in the Comikaze challenge in which legions of sleep deprived nerds will attempt to create a 24 page comic in 24 hours. Sounds mental right? Yeah, MENTAL LIKE A FOX!! Anyways - you can follow my progress on the blog as I'll be posting the pages here as I hurtle towards glory / the completion of the comic.
OK - we're off and racing. The way this works is every hour there are 3 key words posted by the event organisers which you need to include in your comic if you start in that hour. You then have 24 hours to finish. My words are greater, liqueur and jumping and I kicked off at 10 pm.
Not exactly sure where the story is heading however I've decided if I belt out an action / thriller using a well worn Holywood 3 act structure it will probably write itself.
And I'll end up with a comic that would form the good basis for a Steven Seagal movie.
Here we go...
2 more pages done but now I need to go to sleep. This may drastically affect my 1 page per hour average unless I can get some serious sleep drawing done in the next few hours. It's never achieved this before but I shall sleep with an artline pen in one hand and see what happens.
10 hours to go and I have 6 pages done. Shite. Come on Bauer!!!!!!
9 down. Tick tock Clarise.
12 pages! Half way there with 5 hours to spare. What a breeze.
A teensy bit of cheating here. Desperate times...
Can't post. Drawing.
21 Drawings. 24 hours. It'll have to do.
