Date: Sat, Apr. 5, 2008 - Sun, Apr. 6, 2008
Time: 10 AM - 10 AM
Hey, Portlanders! This event is being coordinated as part of the all-out cultural assault that is The Month Before Stumptown (previously known as April):
1 ARMY OF CARTOONISTS!
1 UNFORGETTABLE EVENT!
Announcing the return of 24-Hour Comic Day... Stumptown style! At 10
AM on Saturday, April 5, cartoonists from all over Portland and beyond
will converge on Cosmic Monkey Comics for a marathon of comic-book
magic. Will YOU be one of them?
A 24-hour comic is exactly what it sounds: one complete comic story
(24 pages) completed in 24 hours. Writing, drawing, lettering, and if
you're really ambitious, coloring -- it's all gotta be done on the
spot. Similar to the ever-popular National Novel Writing Month, it's
an opportunity to celebrate your art form, get your creative juices
flowing, and enjoy the rare opportunity to have some company working
"But what," you ask, "will make THIS 24-hour comic event special?" How about:
- LIVEBLOGGING 'round the clock by the tireless staff of Cosmic Monkey
Comics and Top Shelf Productions!
- a gaggle of ADORING FANS and curious passers-by who will be on hand
to cheer you on and watch the magic unfold!
- MAD REFRESHMENTS to keep you fueled and power you through that
particularly stubborn page!
- FELLOW CARTOONISTS drawing right alongside, ready for some mutual inspiration!
- SPECIAL GUESTS including the legendary JIM VALENTINO and 24-Hour
Comic world record holder DAVID CHELSEA (who will create his
staggering TENTH 24-hour comic before our very eyes)!
With still more to be announced as we get closer.
So... CARTOONISTS! Ink-slingers and pixel-pushers alike! Step on up
and join the action!
