THIS Saturday, January 5 2013, more than thirty creators are going to gather at the home of The Comic Book Lounge & Gallery and Guerilla Printing for an event hosted by my Comic Book Bootcamp, and my studio-mates, Comic Book Embassy. It’s our first ever 24 Hour Comic Challenge Marathon!
Obviously, it’s a take off on Scott McCloud’s 24 Hour Comic Day, which was back on October 20. At the time, we were still getting our workshop space organised, and I think it was the weekend between a couple of comic conventions…all in all, everyone we knew said they were too busy to think of participating.
So, we decided to wait until now, and run one as a way to jump start everyone’s creativity for the year. For those who have always wanted to do a comic book but have been putting it off–jump in feet first and just do it! For some of my students who have been working hard on their skills for the last year, this is a chance to show them off and give them a good workout.
All of Comic Book Embassy will be there participating in the Challenge. Keiren and I will be there as hosts, although I’m thinking that eventually I’ll feel like I have to pick up a pencil and do some drawing myself. Might end doing a bit of live Bun-Tooning during the night.
The participants’ list is now closed, but we’re hoping that if you’re in the neighbourhood, you’ll drop by to say hello, check out the various creators and see how they’re doing with this completely arbitrary and self-imposed schedule! 24 pages in 24 hours! Can they do it? Come down to 587A College Street West, Second Floor, Toronto, Saturday January 5 10:00am to Sunday January 6 10:00 am, and find out!
Ty the Guy OUT!
And for your bonus comic moment:
24 h comics are awesome. Should make one myself, when there`s nothing else to do. But frankly, it terrifies me. Well, I guess I have to ignore the fear.
The only way to ever make art is to ignore the fear.

I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more
pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to
create your theme? Great work!
Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the
book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message
home a bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog.
A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.
