other 90% of the time" - Murphy's Law

=======Is this really the best way to make a great comic?

Probably not (although some really cool comics have been made this way), but that's not the real goal. The goal is to have the experience of trying. It's a creative exercise that can teach you a lot about what you're capable of.

=======Who came up with the concept of 24 hour comic?

A cartoonist namd Scott McCloud. Scott is the leading theoretician in the comics field, a position he achieved with the release of Understanding Comics, an analysis of the comics form in the comics form. Head on over to www.ScottMcCloud.com to learn more about Scott and his insights.

========How many 24 hour comics have been done?

Over 1000 people have taken the challenge so far.

========Who can take part?

Anyone of any age, gender, or skill level....Fact is, @ Image Collections,

MORE WOMEN have been a part of '24 HR Comic Day' than MEN!!! 

We want YOU to be a part, and spread the word for others also....

 
Yes, that means you are welcome to visit...if only to come out for a while to show your support for these 'Courageous Crusaders of Creativity'....

  world. Hundreds of them. Thousands, maybe...."

Image Collections, a store FULL of SEQUENTIAL-ART-GOODNESS in Streetsville, Mississauga

(VERY near Toronto), CANADA is hosting Our 4TH ANNUAL 24 HOUR COMIC BOOK DAY Event on

SAT OCT 1st starting @ 11:00am!.....

[[[come out and support the creators]]]

***********THE INFORMATION 

 24 Hour Comics Day 2011 @ Image Collections
Entertainment & Arts - Comics & Animation

 ENERGIZE yourself by entering this CREATIVE MARATHON guaranteed to be memorable, forfilling, and FUN!!! . .

 WHAT IS '24 HOUR COMIC BOOK DAY' ? 
.....It is a worldwide event which occurs in the Fall of every year!
 Spend 24 hours creating a 24-page comic book from start to finish!

We could tell you more, but it's easier to go play HERE if you need to....
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24-hour_comic . . .

 **************THE DARE:

. ----Create a complete 24 pg comic book in 24 hrs! .

 ---------Story, layout, pencils, inking, finished art, lettering, colours, paste-up,...

....everything done by ONE PERSON over ONE DAY!!! . .

 --Once pen hits paper, the clock starts ticking.... 24 hours later, the pen lifts off the paper,

...never to descend again.

 --Even proofreading has to occur in the 24 hour period.

 --No sketches, designs, plot summaries or any other kind of direct preparation can precede

the 24 hour period.

 --Indirect preparation such as assembling tools, reference materials, food, music etc. is fine. . .

---THE 24 HOURS ARE CONTINUOUS.... 
........You can take a nap if you like but the clock will continue to tick!

---If you get to 24 hours and you're not done, sadly it will remain so...

------THE FUN

Everyone has a story inside them....

It really isn't that difficult to find one bumping around in your brain,

and, as hard as it may seem, creating one on demand is much easier than you think...

and can result in astounding results....

Having FUN, challenging yourself, and meeting creative people who love to share

is much more of a strong incentive to attending as thinking your ouput will look funny can discourage...

Discovering your hidden abilities, even if it is only a few pages worth, is truly ispirational and affirming!

COME ON OUT on 24 Hour Comic Book Day and finally show off to the world your,

as yet, untapped artistic skills...

YES, we'd LOVE to see some of that 'flair with a pen' you used to dazzle friends & family with,

and you might just make a connection @ Image Collections, join our free art group,

and be showing off your OWN creative masterpieces before you know it.....

 -----Writers, Artists, Filmakers.... . HERE's YOUR CHANCE to break onto the scene....

-----Bucketlist Creators....HERE's ONE you've not considered before....

 -Create a 24 page Movie Storyboard . . .

=======What is a 24 hour comic?
 

The 24 hour comic challenge is for a cartoonist to completely create a 24 page comics story in 24 straight hours. A "24 hour comic" is any comics story you make while facing the challenge, even if you end after 24 hours with a story that's shorter than 24 pages. For more details on the challenge, click .

=======Is this really the best way to make a great comic?

Probably not (although some really cool comics have been made this way), but that's not the real goal. The goal is to have the experience of trying. It's a creative exercise that can teach you a lot about what you're capable of.

=======Who came up with the concept of 24 hour comic?

A cartoonist namd Scott McCloud. Scott is the leading theoretician in the comics field, a position he achieved with the release of Understanding Comics, an analysis of the comics form in the comics form. Head on over to to learn more about Scott and his insights.

========How many 24 hour comics have been done?

Over 1000 people have taken the challenge so far.

=======Who is the youngest person to have drawn a 24 hour comic?

Duncan Lowell, who took the challenge at age seven during the first 24 Hour Comics Day in 2004.

=======What is 24 Hour Comics Day?

It's a celebration of creation of 24 hour comics. The first day was held in 2004, and it is a day when people are encouraged to create 24 hour comics. Some folks gather to work on comics side by side, while other folks work on their stories at home alone or in private gatherings. Many of the official event sites are open for the public to come and watch the effort.

24 Hour Comics Day event sites have folks working on comics doing their own thing in an atmmosphere of creativity....

FACTS ABOUT 24 hour Comics Day: 

  • The first 24 Hour Comics Day was April 24th, 2004.
  • Over 500 cartoonists were at work in 57 event locations for the 2004 festival, with an untold number more celebrating at home.
  • Over 800 cartoonists were at work in 70 event locations for the 2005 festival, with an untold number more celebrating at home.
  • Over 1200 cartoonists were at work in 89 event locations for 2006, with an untold number more celebrating at home. More than 15,000 pages of art were created at 24 Hour Comics Day events.
  • 2004 event locations: US, Canada, and South Korea, with individual particpants in other countries and on other continents.
  • 2005: US, Canada, Thailand, France, Germany, the Nethrlands and Serbia.
  • 2006 was the big international explosion: US, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, England, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, New Zealand, and Portugal.
  • Most of the participants are in their late teens or twenties, with a real mix of male and female participants.
  • While most participants are amateurs, many pro cartoonists take part as well. Past years have seen participation from such big-name folk as former X-Men artist Paul Smith, popular online cartoonist Scott Kurtz (pvponline.com), and James O'Barr (creator of The Crow). Some were folks who want to be professional cartoonists. And many were folks just having fun by trying it.
  • You don't have to be a good artist to participate. It's a lot of fun to do, even if you use stick figures to tell your story.
  • People do different styles of comics. In addition to the most common black-ink-on-white-paper drawings, we've had full color painted comics, computer-drawn comics, photo comics, ones made of pictures of posed action figures, a series of painted stones with captions, and we even had one guy who made a Daredevil superhero comic by cutting pictures of Ben Affleck's head out of magazines and pasting them onto stick figure bodies. In terms of content, there's a lot of humor comics, some action, some superhero, some sci-fi, and a lot of autobiography.
  • The 24 hour comics challenge was created in 1990 by Scott McCloud, leading comics theoretician and author of Understanding Comics and Reinventing Comics.
  • Between 1990 and 2004, people were doing 24 hour comics on their own or in small gatherings for more than a decade. However, we estimated that the number of people who have done them roughly doubled on 2004's inaugural 24 Hour Comics Day, and added a greater number to the list in 2005 and again in 2006, with 2009 looking to be bigger still.
  • The 24 hour comics that were done before 24 Hour Comics Day was launched tend to be much more downbeat and depressed than the ones done at 24 Hour Comics Day events. This is probably because people at the events are working side by side and sharing the fun; working on a comic at 4:30 AM all alone can give one a lot of time to reflect on bleak thoughts.
  • Cartoonists who are falling behind the clock often do a full-page shot (instead of a bunch of panels) in order to try to catch up.
  • Round about page 19, when cartoonists are worried if they'll finish at all, their characters sometimes fall into a cavern, turn out the lights, or get lost in a snow storm, so that the cartoonist has a page or two that is all-white or all-black with dialog balloons, a cheap and obvious trick for catching up quickly.
 THE REAL CHALLANGE IS WITH YOURSELF.....
------HOW IMPRESSIVE CAN YOU MAKE THE COMIC?
------HOW MUCH CONTENT [story & art & other] CAN YOU FIT IN?
------HOW MANY PAGES CAN YOU FINISH [...to the level you wish them to be at...]?
------CAN YOU PRODUCE SOMETHING 'UNDERtheGUN'?
------WORKING WITH OTHERS, INSPIRING FEEDBACK ENJOYED?
