[UPDATE: Forget this post. For the real deal, go read Kevin Cannon's 24-hour comic tips.]
How do you train to stay awake -- and draw -- for 24 hours?
There are two schools of thought.
1) Practice staying awake 24 hours prior to the event. And by the time you get to the real 24 hours, you'll be so tired you won't care if you're awake or not. Your creativity will reach new heights!
2) Rest up before the 24 hours. Try to get 12-14 hours of sleep the night before. Then, when you get in Saturday morning (at 9:30 a.m. for the starting time of 10), you'll be groggy, achy and cranky from too much time in the sack.
Three schools of thought.
3) Just get a regular night's sleep. Count on caffeinated beverages and the thrill of group creativity to power you.
Keep in mind, you will have lots of time to nap Sunday afternoon.
Any other suggestions?
