Jesse and I ventured off the to Mansfied Art Center on October 20 for the 24 hour event....24-Hour Comic Day. This event was created by comic artist Scott McCloud (I think I have that right). It is a worldwide event. The idea is that you create a comic book in 24 hours. One page an hour. Acutally, the break down says you should do it in 45-minutes with restroom breaks and what-not...
So-Jesse and I have never done comic books. Jesse would be a natural. He has been writing Joe and Bob books for years now. I, on the other hand, do not write stories. I draw pictures--I make books. I can do this...it is a challenge. I am always up for a challenge.
We packed a cooler, packed snacks, art supplies, Mountain Dew for Jesse, Arizona Tea for me. Drove an hour and a half-walked in the door and got started. (NO-the drive back did not enter my mind-1 1/2 hours driving sleep deprived was the furthest thing from my mind).
Jesse finished his comic at about 6:30 ish AM-whatever!! I finished mine at about 5:00 pm..
I do hope to meet up someday with the artists we met again. They are awesome. Derrick does some amazing work-color is amazing too! Stay posted-when I can I will share a site that you can see the work of everyone!
