I just got The DC Comics Guide to Digitally Drawing Comics in the mail today and I’m really looking forward to diving into it. Since I do a majority of the strip completely digitally, this is the book I’ve been waiting for for a long time. It’s written by Freddie E Williams II, a comic book professional who draws monthly print comics almost exclusively on the computer.

Well we survived another 24 Hour Comic Day. It was great experience and a lot of fun, but super-tiring. Scott and I were the last men standing at Time Tunnel, but we didn’t quite get all 24 pages done. I’ve got about five more pages to finish and when I do, I’ll make sure to post them.
Thanks again to Pat Donley, owner of Time Tunnel Comics and host of 24HCD and also thanks to Larry Young, publisher of AiT/Planet Lar, who came all the way to Pittsburgh to hang out with us.
Whew! Okay, I’m still on schedule!
Sorry for the delay folks. Friday’s strip was all set to be finished yesterday, but a personal/family obligation took precedence. I didn’t get the strip finished until….oh about 10 minutes ago.
That’s right, it’s still fresh and warm, like chocolate chip cookies out of the oven.
In other news, this is the last announcement for 24 Hour Comic Day which takes place tomorrow. Find out where they might be hosting 24HCD in your area or, heck, do it on your own! It’s not as much fun as being in a sweatshop atmosphere with a dozen other comic book artists, but it’s about challenging yourself and pushing yourself.
Me, I’ll be drawing at Time Tunnel Comics here in Pittsburgh, most likely all jacked up on caffeine and pizza by midnight.
If you’re participating in 24HCD, good luck! See you Monday!
