So, I spent my Saturday making a comic as part of the "24 Pages in 24 Hours" create a comic project. It might have been an indulgent use of a Saturday, but I had fun doing it. Well, mostly. About halfway through the afternoon, I really wanted to quit. Even this morning, my shoulders are tense and my back is sore. But then, that could be more a result of struggling to upload the work to Scribd this morning. Grrr. Stupid, dumb internet connection!
As the note at the end of the comic states, I made this comic in a 24 hour period from 8am Sat (10/2/2010) to 8 am this morning. I did use, in the composition, some scans from my sketchbook and some clips I've digitally created before, but the concept and the composition (as well as the digital clean-up) happened all yesterday. I also did a fair amount of fresh drawing yesterday (hands very sore!). The comic is a (possibly problematic) mix of poemics, cartooning, and some abstract comics. Mostly, though, I just tried to stay in motion and produce the work in the time allotted.
It Bleeds, It Won't Be Contained
Here is a link to the comic in case the embed breaks (as they tend to do!).
