Rob Stenzinger's 24-hour Comic Day comic

A link to Rob Stenzinger's 24-hour comic. Rob was drawing right on his computer screen. Isn't it great to be living in the future? Congratulations, Rob!

Dan Olson's 24-hour Comic Day comic

Here's a link the page where you can download Dan Olson's 24-hour comic. This is his third state-based storyline. He hints that he may do all 50 states. Yikes! Congratulations, Dan!

Ryan Dow's 24-hour Comic Day comic

Here's a link to Ryan Dow's 24-hour comic. Excellent as ever. Ryan was also the first to complete 24 pages. As ever. Congratulations, Ryan!

24-hour Comic Day -- the 24th hour

Those who were there at the end.

Thanks to Minnesota Center for Book Arts for hosting this year's event!

Back in the FlexiSpace

Everyone is now out of the Bindery and back into the FlexiSpace room. (There is a Sunday morning class in the Bindery -- hey, MCBA is a busy place.)

8:30 a.m. -- hour and a half to go





Away from the crowd

Tone Redmon's desk. What it lacks in light it makes up for in peace and quiet.

The time is right for the Old Codger

Night time is the right time for podcasts from WFMU's Old Codger. The Codger plays 78 RPM records -- like they're going out of style! Sophie Tucker is The Codger's favorite singing group. The Codger has shoes older than you.

2 o'clock photos

Some photos from Sarah Morean.

She says, "Not representative of the whole group. Good luck for the next . . . seven hours! That's when I'll be sleeping."


Chris Lyons (why wasn't he in any of the group shots?) and Justin Babb.


Arianna Fahrenkamp, Marina Harkness and Salina Tervino.


Table of the Dans. Klonowski, Olson and Murphy.


Carlos Merino.

24-hour Cartoonists Rock Band

At Grumpy's. Bud, Dan, Britt and Danno rock the Pixies' "I Bleed."



Computer helpers

There are a lot of computers here today. Many used as research tools. Some for music machines. Some for drawing tablets. Useful little guys.








Pizza from Sarpino's Pizzaria

10 p.m. is the 12-hour mark. And time for some delicious pizza. Piping hot from Sarpino's right across the street.


White Castle

Chris Budel stopped by with a box of White Castle cheeseburgers. There were groans of disgust. All of the cheeseburgers were eaten, however. Yummy.

Half way. The group at 10 p.m.

Into the bindery

The class that was in the bindery ended at 5 or so. So when they were gone, the cartoonists moved in. Nice!

Snacking at the snack table

Danno, Carlos, Justin, Ryan, Jesse and Joe at the trough.

Six hours in. Tabletops.

Peeking in on the eleven tables. (Click for bigger.)
