24 hr Comic Attempt

well, i tried to do a 24 hour comic and failed... but in a GOOD way!
a 24 hour comic is basicly what it sounds like: a complete 24 page comic, written drawn and lettered all in one day. it's not unusual to spend a day drawing one page, so trying to do a whole comic in one day is pretty crazy.
thank comic book intellectual (no, that's not an oxymoron!) Scott McCloud for popularizing the idea...
anyways, i tried it, and got 10 pages drawn, which i will get posted this week (they still need to be lettered...). my friend mike did a good job of it last year using a stream of consciousness drawing technique, but that didn't work for me.
i wound up doing a spontaneous story that was basicly a grudge match between me and my roommate/homeboy Corance... it's the BOMB!
i'll post the pages in the next few days. and i will be finishing that story maaadd soon. just thought i'd share since i been awol...

Good Stuff! I like this drawing. Especially the guy at the desk. I will give this a shot myself - although I think I will set a longer deadline. It does sound like a mad cram session to attempt to do so much in 24. I admire your zeal. Maybe you will hit it the next time - "KEEP ON TRYING!!!!!"

Nice going. You've set a great example. We should all be setting challenges for ourselves and rising to the occasion.

I like that idea. I may try that one day. It may turn out some of our best work. You know, spontaneous!
