’60s Batgirl abuse, visually abstract transitions, a mystical art gallery hook-up, talking stars, city rampaged my monsters, a rotten kid saves the day … all ending with an empty panel.
I drew this at Hub Comics, starting at noon of October 23, 2010. I worked straight through 24 consecutive hours, but only produced 19 out of the intended 24 pages (with the last page having an empty panel, I technically only made 18.5 pages). Like my 2009 attempt “Blank Spot“, this story was made with the following art materials:
- 7.5″ x 10.75″ live area on 9″ x 12″ sketch paper
- Speedball Super Black India Ink
- Short-handle round #4 sable brush
- Ruling pen (borders)
- Speedball nib #512 (straight lines, details)
- Speedball C6 and B5 (lettering)
- Ames Lettering Guide (setting 3.5 default)
Perhaps using an Ames Guide for a 24-hour comic is a bit crazy, but I needed the practice to make my finished work look better.
