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...


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



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...


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...


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


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


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  :)
