A Whole Day of Comic-Makin’

Posted on 28 September 2009 by admin

24 Hour Comics Day poster

The annual 24 hours of comic book creating is underway this weekend! Originated by Scott McCloud, the challenge to create a full 24-page comic in only 24 hours is a tradition at SCAD. Comic book shops around the world participate, and Norris Hall will be joining in once again this year!

Any student from any major may participate, and most classrooms as well as workspace will be available on a first come, first serve basis. A lot of the faculty and staff will be present, so even if you do not create your own 24-hour comic, you can hang out with students, professors, and all your favorite SEQALab homies!

Welcome back to SCAD everyone! If you’ve been to Norris Hall already, you’ll find that we are sharing the building with other majors! Although it’s not new that Speech and Public Speaking has taken place in Norris, we also have a few Fashion majors and Graphic Design students. Check out the bulletin board by the stairs for your class schedules and information about our off-campus programs being offered this year.

SCAD Event | There is a Jeremy Mullins Memorial in the O-House Ballroom at 8PM Wednesday.

Interview | If you’ve taken Visual Storytelling 1 with professor Tom Lyle, you’re probably familiar with Shawn Martinbrough’s How to Draw Noir Comics, a recommended textbook for the class. Tim O’shea interviews him about the book and talks about his current projects that include a Luke Cage book. [Robot6]

Education | Comic book education is reaching other schools besides SCAD! Michigan State University is offering a class called The History of the Modern Comic Book. [Bleeding Cool]

Creators | Ben Cohen gets plugged because he’s debuting a new webcomic srip called SHAME on his blog. [SCAD Alumni Association]

Creators | We received a note from Alum Michael Getty. He’s got some work coming out!

I’m finishing inking Skrull Kill Krew, I’m in the process of penciling and inking a short What If: Astonishing X-Men story. And I have a super secret AWESOME project that I’m pencil/inking that I’m about to get started on.

Have a great quarter everyone!
