24-hour comic (or 3-hour comic)
To make your 24-hour comic even more of an event, coordinate it with the national 24-hour comics day. Look at http://www.24hourcomics.com/blog/
to find the date in the current year, usually in April. Click below to check out some 3-hour comics by students. Note how students worked within the limited time; in most cases, even those students who normally use nib pens used a brush for speed. Often, backgrounds were minimized or dropped. The drawing sometimes has a dashed-off quality, which, however, can be really lovely, not just messy-looking. Despite the pressures of working fast, these students were able to tell fairly complete, satisfying stories. Enjoy them!
