In honor of 24-Hour Comics Day, here’s an old photo of Ivy and me I just received, via my Aunt Pat, dating from around the period over 19 years ago, when the first 24-hour comic was drawn in our Somerville, Massachusetts apartment.
As mentioned last Tuesday, I’m just a bystander this year, but good luck to all those participating today. You’re about to scale the Mount Everest of comics. Don’t forget to breath!
Happy 24 Hour Comic Day! I ended up chickening out. Maybe next year, if I have less homework to do.
You two were *and* are a very cute couple, maestro. One that gives us all hope that it is possible to be a cartoonist *and* happily married.
But shouldn’t you be drawing by now? The clock is ticking!
What, what am I doing here? I have 8 more pages to pencil! GAHHH
Ha! What a cool picture!
Wow, I always saw Ivy’s resemblance to the girls but it’s really evident here 🙂
I’m in the middle of drawing my comic right now- best of luck to the rest of the participants!
I did it, and finished at two in the morning, NYC time. I live New Zealand so went from 7:28 Saturday to 7:28 Sunday, but finished my last page an hour deadline. This was my second 24 hour comic, but last time was earlier this year.
Whoa.It’s 24 Hour Comic Day?Must start!
Wow.You guys are so young in that picture….
Via Twitter, @Lea_Ada_Franco checks in:
“1st ALL IPOD-produced 24hr Comic complete & ready 4 reading”
Oh, and Nat Gertler reports:
“This guy is acting as writer for the 24 hour plays… then, once handing the script to the actors, spending the rest of the 24 hours turning the script into a comic.”
I posted the script and comic, both are a bit rough but it was a rewarding (and mind boggling) experience. Very interesting to see the play being performed at the end of it all and I had good company throughout.
You’re going to be at my college tomorrow!!
Did I just miss it,or did you forget to mention reviewing the Astro Boy movie?
Did I review the Astro Boy movie?? I haven’t even seen it yet.
