a peek at the 24-hour comic marathon

So what's it like to make a whole book in 24 hours? Last weekend I took part, with six other artists - Jack Teagle, Kristyna Baczynski, Warwick Johnson Cadwell, Dan Berry, Fumio Obata and Joe Decie - in the 24-Hour Comic Marathon at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Kendal.

I've posted the pages of my comic so you could read them online here. And you can read about the 24-Hour Comic dare on Scott McCloud's website.



I was kind of scared in the days leading up to our 24-Hour Comic Marathon. The longest I've ever worked without going to bed is about 17 hours, and that was miserable. That was when my picture book You Can't Scare a Princess! was due, and I started to go a bit mental from lack of sleep. I did those hours a few days in a row and went between feeling horrible and headachy to feeling sort of elated, and thinking that everything was terribly funny and posting a very stupid video song on YouTube. I wasn't looking forward to doing that again. (My studio mate taped my face so I wouldn't do any more songs.)
