Hour Six - One Fourth of the way through!

Hey all, this is Dan Olson (not Danno Klonowski or Dan Murphy). Just checking in with all of you out there that MAY be reading this blog. I know I talked about it enough on Facebook over the last couple of days.

So, far with only six hours in I'm done pencilling and writing the 24 pages. I'm working on inking and lettering pages three and four. I went about doing the whole project a bit different this year. First, I'm writing and penciling everything up front. This should prevent writers block and not being able to figure out layouts in the wee hours of the morning. I'm working smaller, which is a time saver. I'm working at 5.5 x 8.5, which is what the printed comic will be. Also, I'm working on graph paper, which means I don't need to deal with a ruler. The graph paper is 11 x 17, so i am doing two pages per sheet. I know that I could do four per page, but I just feel like being wasteful, OKAY?

If all goes well, I should be done around 3 or 4 AM. However that is a pipe dream. In reality I will probably be done somewhere around 6 or 7 AM.

Anyway, I'm starting to bore myself and probably you as well. I'm going to get back to the comic now. I'll check in later to tell you how things are going.

keep up the good work! I'm not drawing but am watching the store and making sure no one steals Flash Gordon figures. We have pizza on the way!! Looks like you guys have a nice turnout. We have 8.

Thanks Luke! I hope everything turned out well for you guys in Chitown! I finished my comic around 5 AM. Once I get a chance it will be posted and linked to on this site, I'm sure.
