My experiences and the outcome of attempting to make 24 pages of comics in 24 hours
On Friday and Saturday I participated in my first 24-Hour Comic Challenge where I made 24 pages of comics in 24 hours. It was a heck of a challenge, and I’m happy to share that I successfully completed it!
I documented my experiences in the video above.
The result of the challenge is an action fantasy comic called Lavender, which can be read free online.
I’ve been wanting to do a 24-Hour Comic Challenge for a bit now, and I’ve got the date all set. I’m going to try to make 24 pages of comics over 24 hours on June 22 and June 23.
It should be a great way to push myself to work faster and hopefully learn a lot.
I’m not doing it on the international day in October because I want to take on the challenge sooner, and I’m also not going to go for 24 consecutive hours. I’m planning on taking 8 hours to sleep. I’m not into staying up all night, and skipping a night of sleep will really throw off my life balance.
My employer, Big Cartel, has an Arts & Service Hours program where we can use some time to work on personal projects, volunteer, or learn new skills. I’m using some of my hours to take on this challenge.
I’ve got a little over a month to prepare. I’m feeling a little nervous, but also really excited.
