Comikaze 24 Hour Comic Book Challenge


Well, this is a first for me.  No idea what to expect and throwing myself in the deep end to see what will come of it  :)

To follow what other artists across Australia are up to, head here.

I will be set up with a few friends to keep each other company (and awake) as we pull each other through the 24 hours.  I'm sure it will be interesting and quite surreal by the last hours.  Who's crazy enough to be a part of these shenanigans?  That would be Paul Briske and... ah... myself only now.  Hah, some have pulled out once faced with the possibility of brain implosion.  Ah well.

Here I will post updates as I go.  Currently, I'm thinking I will only be able to produce 8 pages but we'll see how that goes.  If I can reach 16 pages I will be mighty surprised.

Now, let's begin...

9:00pm

We've just received our three words which are to be incorporated somehow within the story.  Those words are...

messy
conflict
plan

10:15pm

First page is scribbling together.  I've roughed out a rough idea on paper for the story and now attempting to put some visuals down.  Yeah, it's always ugly at this point...


2:15am

Got the layouts down and the story is beginning to unfold... I think.


Also started working up from the layouts and finding a 'style' using a rough painterly technique...



5:00am

Still awake and working ok.  Feeling a bit of weariness creeping in.  Here's the pages so far...


10:45am

Been feeling some hurt but got a second wind coming at last.  Well, at least I hope...


2:45pm

Ouch.  We're getting there.  Less than 6hrs to go and I still haven't added a script.  Last minute?  You betcha  ;)


Yup... ALL DONE!!!

Here's the pages.  Please disregard the errors.  Hey... it's been 24hrs and that's my excuse  ;)










Now... I'm drinking beer with my 24hr pal, Paul Briske  :)

About Me

My photo

David does not enjoy writing bio/profile thingies. Now he's got that off his chest he might be able to write something... Beginning in comic book illustration in the mid nineties (Batman, Wolverine, Catwoman, R.E.B.E.L.S., The Phantom... and more recently, In Flesh & Spirit and The Legend of Spacelord Mo Fo), David has continued in the pursuit of learning through living. Something we all have in common.
