Hourly Comic Day Is Coming

Hourly Comic Day is a tradition/cartooning challenge I’ve taken part in for the past two years. It happens every February 1st, and I’m very much looking forward to participating again this coming Sunday (which should be interesting as that day ALSO happens to be Super Bowl Sunday).

Each year, I do my little bit to promote the event … but this year I’m inadvertently doing even MORE. You see, last night I was contacted by an editor from CannedGeek.com (an Australian geek culture site) asking if they could use one of my drawings from last year’s Hourly Comic Day in a short article they were doing about the subject. I happily agreed, and the article is already posted on their site.

The BEST thing about Hourly Comic Day, I think, is that you DON’T have to be a professional to participate. Flip through some of the past years’ examples and you’ll see that MOST of participants are just ordinary doodlers. It’s an event for ALL people who love to sketch, scribble, and draw … and some of the BEST entries are by people whose best known work is probably hanging on a cubicle wall or a refrigerator somewhere. Hourly Comic Day is just a FUN personal challenge that you can share with the world.

Look for hourly doodles (that is, DRAWN hourly … not necessarily POSTED that quickly) from me on Sunday … and in the meanwhile you can check out my 2008 and 2007 offerings … or anyone else’s on the forum.
