24 hour comic day

Continuing with the unearthing of things made a some time ago, these are some pages from the 24 hour comic I drew last october.
I had never participated before, in 2008 the organisers here at the comic book museum in Groningen couldn't get enough participants so they canceled it. But last year they found just enough people.

It was a rather odd experience, as much as I spend my days drawing and doodling, I can usually take a break, or go to bed.
But forcing yourself to just buckle down and start drawing and not stop until you've done 24 pages is something quite different.
In the end I'm glad I did it, it's nice as a sort of test, though I'm not sure I'd do it more often. I think I prefer some more time to think about what I want to draw. As a result I don't think my comic stands up as a whole, but there are some nice enough drawings in it.

Oh and I was done in 17 hours.
