24 Hour Comics Day 2015 September 18 2015

24 Hour Comics Day falls on October 3 this year, and we're hosting the Kochi edition of this international event!

Though 24 Hour Comics Day has been celebrated for the past 10 years, this is probably the first time that Kochi is joining other cities across the world. And we're bringing together creators from different parts of the country - Kochi, Chennai, Bangalore, Ahmedabad - for this very first edition!

What's most exciting is that all of us are trying our hand at a 24-hour-comic for the first time! For sure, this is going to be a mighty challenge, but we're going to be in this together... and sink or swim, it's going to be an experience we won't forget.

If you'd like to join us in this marathon comic-making session, give us a call at 9567184226 right away.

We'll keep ready the ingredients you need to survive these 24 hours - paper & art materials, food, and also a few sleeping pads for a quick nap or a longer break.

It doesn't matter if you've never made a comic before... or if you don't see yourself as a writer / artist. It doesn't matter if you can't make it to Kochi this weekend, that's why we have webcams and the internet, isn't it?

All you need is an idea and the motivation to make these 24 hours count.

The challenge: To create a 24-page comic in 24 straight hours.
You can think of an idea of a story that you want to tell, but that's all that you can have prior to the event.
The script, character designs, thumbnails page layouts and everything else that makes a comic must be created during the 24 hours.

Time: 10am Oct 3 to 10am Oct 4

Venue: Studio Kokaachi
Map/Directions: Opposite Central Park, Panampilly Nagar

Our favourite 24-hour comic: Darkness by Boulet. Of course, Boulet is a genius. See this, this, and this (his most recent 24-hour-comic).
