24 Hours 4 Colours 8 BitsOctober 9th, 2009
This past weekend, I participated in 24 Hour Comics Day at the fabulous Kingston comic store 4 Colour 8 Bit. I was down there anyhow, for my very own art show at this very same store – it was great fun, and thanks a ton to Kevin for putting it together, and Nick for allowing me to spend entirely too much time in his store despite the fact I don’t think I bought anything but Pac Man power pellet candy.
I suppose it was something of a cheat, since my comic was a collaboration with m’dear friend Aggy. The story came from both of us – we couldn’t decide what on earth to do a comic about, so we just decided to do EVERYTHING, and base it on our stupid conversations. She did the lettering, erasing pencils, and filling in large black areas, not to mention writing the old-man rants, which was a task in itself. (And the Cleavager is her fault. I will take no credit for that one.) So while the art is basically all mine, I couldn’t have done it without her, not to mention having somebody to yell at me to stay awake. When she was awake.
Other adventures included drawing at Denny’s in the middle of the night, being interviewed for the Queen’s University TV channel… all in all, a crazy weekend! God, I love Kingston.
