On Saturday, I stayed up all night working on a 24 hour comic with Miss Mary Bee!
She wrote the words, I drew stuff!

We holed up at the Comics Outpost for a full day of drawing, along with fellow 24hour participants Doctor Popular & Mike Hales.

What is 24 hour comic day?

put simply: 24 pages in 24 hours.
Here’s my second page (the first is the title page, and I’ll be posting that last):

Page 2

It was a departure for me. I’ve been pushing the amount of textures and collage stuff in my work for a little while,
partly influenced by the non-digital work I’ve been doing (which deserves a post one of these days)
& I did a few sketchbook/collage things digitally recently that people responded well to….
So for the challenge, I decided to really embrace that collage aesthetic and let go of illustration a little if the page or time limits called for it.

I’ll be posting this comic a page or 2 at a time over the next couple weeks.

I am both satisfied and shocked that I made it through all 24 hours, and left with 24 pages in hand.

Extra thanks to my writer, Mary Bee! I couldn’t have done it without you!

    I love the layering of text combined with the archival-style worn paper texture of the background… It’s very other-worldly, but in the most perfect way.

    xoxoxo.

  3. So very pretty! Love the soft colours and sketchy linework. And the textures in the speech bubbles? Perfection. Looking forward to seeing more! 🙂
