Happy (Belated) 24 Hour Comic Book Day

I just participated in my very first 24 Hour Comic Book Day. I was not able to complete the story I did breakdowns for when the clock started ticking. I ran out of time after page 6. I had to wrap it up with 16 splash pages featuring a stick figure. Yeesh. Drawing 22 pages of narrative with pencils and inks and letters and no nap-breaks is a rough time. It definitely teaches you to prioritize!

I had a lot of fun though, and I definitely want to do it again. I would like to actually finish the breakdowns I did, so maybe I'll do a 16-page comic in 24 hours? Or maybe two 8-page comics in two different blocks of 24 hours. Either way, really. (But really, it should all be done at once).

So this panel here is my favorite bit I pumped out in the last 24 hours. It actually has a stat panel that follows it, but really- I think this panel says it all. I know I've felt like that when an employer has needed me to do something outside of my regularly scheduled working hours. ^_^

Once I scan all my pages I'll be posting them here, so keep your eyes peeled. They'll be up really soon.
