24 Hour Comics Day 2011 in Seattle

We had a great 24 Hour Comics Day in Seattle, at the Phinney Center this year. We had a great group of people this year including Randy Wood, Tom Dougherty, Breanne Boland, Marc Palm, Nikki Burch plus a few others working remotely. Henry Chamberlain coordinated the event again this year at the Phinney Center and thanks the center for the use of its venue. Henry also established a contact with the Experience Music Project and their new horror exhibition: “Can’t Look Away: The Lure of Horror Film.” We all created comics with a horror theme in honor of the event. Here is a video recap on CNN iReport.

Thanks from Montpelier, Vt.!

I was way too tired (and my laptop battery way too low) to do a final post when we finished up at 10am this morning at Montpelier City Hall. Our event this year was a huge success, with more than 20 people taking attempts at 24-Hour Comics, about half finishing successfully and many, many amazing comics drawn.

Above is a page from Ed Epstein’s gorgeous and moving 24-Hour Comic story.

We also had a great media coverage for the event, including this story in the Times Argus and Rutland Herald newspapers. And tomorrow morning – at the crazy time of 6:20am – I’m being interviewed live in the studio at WCAX about the 24-Hour Comic challenge!

We had so much fun. Thanks to everyone who made this event a success. See you next year!

24Hour Comics Day concluded in Kitchener!

In summary: 4 participants, 1 had to leave early
– of the 3 remaining, 2 were 24Hour Comic Day vets
– at the end of the day, neither vets finished 24 pages
– the last person concluded with all 24 pages
