24 Hour Comic Day at Art House

comicbook

Courtesy of Gabe Gordon ’15:

24-Hour Comics Day is an event held around the world which challenges writers and artists to create a full 24-page comic in 24 consecutive hours.
24 Hour Comics Day is the first Saturday of October. Come join Art House, a(n unofficial) host of this year’s comics marathon!

THE DARE:
To create a complete 24 page comic book in 24 continuous hours. That means everything: Story, finished art, lettering, color (if applicable), paste-up, everything. Once pen hits paper, the clock starts ticking. 24 hours later, the pen lifts off the paper, never to descend again. Even proofreading has to occur in the 24 hour period. No sketches, designs, plot summaries or any other kind of direct preparation can precede the 24 hour period. Indirect preparation such as assembling tools, reference materials, food, music etc. is fine. Your pages can be any size, any material. Carve them in stone, print them with rubber stamps, draw them on your kitchen walls with a magic marker. Whatever you makes you happy. The 24 hours are continuous. You can take a nap, but the clock keeps ticking.
