24 Hour Comics Day: Oct 1st!!!

Tomorrow I will get up in the middle of the night (well.. 7 am.. but with my night rhythm of 3-11 that's the middle of the night) take a huge suitcase with lots of drawing paper, my laptop and even an air mattress and sleeping bag in there and get on the train to Zwolle, where I hope to arrive 1 1/2 hours later.

Then I will take a bus to the art school where I will join 29 other comic book writers at 11 am in an effort to make a 24 pages comic book WITHIN 24 hours.

It sounds like heaps of fun and a serious lack of sleep. The latter being something I am not good at, so I am bringing an air mattress that I can throw in an empty room at the school somewhere in case I really cannot make it till 11 am the next morning, or in case I finish in less than 24 hours.

Or maybe I'll just get up a bit later, take a later train, and try to do it in less than 24 hours ;-)

My friend Saskia gave me the greatest idea for a comic. It will be about my new bunnies Hobbes and Mouse. I have already designed their characters: Sherlock Hobbes and Sidekick Mouse:

So wish me luck! And check in here or my FB account, in case I will be able to put updates during 24HCD. I am sure I could use some cheering on ;-)


  1. Awesome! I can't wait to see the results. (Afterwards is soon enough for me. It sounds as if you can use your time more wisely than to upload the comic while making it!)

  2. ..or by sleeping.. (in).. XD

    I might end up in the NaNo chat (till everyone goes to bed) to ask for some cheering on *grin*

    Thanks Sahi!

  3. Brilliant! Can't wait to see the results! Good luck! The characters look good and I'm curious to see how it'll all develop!
