Follow-Up Post: 24 Hour Comics Day Alaska 2014

YOW! What a turnout for this year: set all-time records for not only participating artists - over thirty - but also a whopping ten people completed all their pages! Not to mention the eighteen of us still creating our brains out right on up to the deadline AND the totally mind-blowing level of quality work on display through the whole event – we have some serious sequential art skills in our neck of the woods. Here's the landing page for backlinks to some previous 24 Hour Comic Days here in the Interior, and hope to see you in 2015!
...more below the fold...

There was a great cross-section of ages & abilities, and diversity of styles & techniques on hand, from traditional pen & ink, pencil, watercolor and digital.

Even everybody who dropped in for a few quick sketches, a handful of panels or a dozen pages kicked some artistic arse. Sure appreciate everyone who stopped by just to say hi and check out the work-in-progress, and it was great to have so many different kinds of people interested and involved.  Special Thanks to: Kevin and the awesome staff at The Comic Shop of Fairbanks for hosting yet another completely insane blowout.

Just a handful of works from some of the attendees - really wish I could have gotten more from everybody, but here's a few samples:

Also big thank-you’s from all of us goes out to the 24 Hour Official Support Crew: Lucas for the pile of pizza pies: Alex for b-fast; Tanya for the creative juices; Diane for the bonus homemade mac & cheese;The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner + KTVF Channel 11 for the coverage; and most importantly everybody for the laughs + inspiration.

And last but not least here's a wonderful segment done by Katie Luper for KTVF Channel 11 News featuring a couple quick interviews, a demo piece and some footage of the event. I spliced in a quick montage of some of the images posted here at the end too so as to make a nice little encapsulation of the event: enjoy!
