It’s almost that time of year, time for the official 24 Hour Comic Book Day.
The folks from the Cartoonist Conspiracy in San Francisco have joined forces with Comics Outpost to take on this unique challenge where artist work to complete a 24 page comic in 24 hours.
Crazyâ€¦..yes, of course. But an excellent challenge none the less. I will be participating, will you?
24 Hour Comics Day is an event where cartoonists all over the world attempt to create their own 24 page comics in 24 consecutive hours.
The San Francisco event is being hosted by the S.F. Cartoonist Conspiracy and Comics Outpost (thanks guys). This is the first official 24 Hour event in SF since the one at Comics Relief in 2005 and we are really excited to have a good venue once again.
If you are interested in taking part in this years event, please email Doctor Popular at at yoyogenius at gmail dot com with your name and phone number. Space is limited to 20 seats, so serious inquiries only, please. Additionally, we are asking for a $5 fee to reserve a space, this money goes to Gary and crew and is the least we could do to cover his expenses.
Artists should bring their supplies, but leave your ideas and storyboards at home. The goal of creating a 24 hour comic is to push your boundaries, and learn just how much you can create in just one day.
We are also looking for any sponsors (pizza, art supplies, etc) and press. If you can help us out, or would like to take part in the event, please let us know.
Time/Date: 11am Sat Oct 18th, 2008 to 11am Sunday Oct 19th
Location: Comics Outpost – 2381 OCEAN AVE. SAN FRANCISCO, CA. 94127 (415) 239-COMX (2669) – http://www.comicoutpost.net/
