24-Hour Comic challenge in Montpelier, Vt.

August 31st, 2010 by Daniel Barlow · 4 Comments

Trees & Hills comics has teamed up with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library to host an official 24-Hour Comics challenge location at their building in beautiful downtown Montpelier, Vt.

The challenge is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 2nd at 11 a.m. and will end on Sunday, Oct. 3rd at 11 a.m.

24-Hour comics is a unique artistic challenge that calls on artists to write and draw a 24-page comic in 24 consecutive hours. For more information on the challenge, visit this website.

The library will open up at 10 a.m. that morning to kick off the event (the challenge begins an hour later) and we’ll have a special guest speaker – and repeat 24-hour comic veteran – to give participants some words of encouragement and advice.

Because of the extreme nature of the challenge, 24-Hour comics will be restricted to people 16 years and older. We also ask that you preregister by e-mailing organize@treesandhills.org with “24-Hour Comics” in the header.

Younger comic fans and artists will be treated to a three-hour comic workshop hosted by Marek Bennett, the creator of the popular newspaper strip, Mimi’s Doughnuts. Participants will learn about all aspects of comic book storytelling and end the session with their own comic book!

Both events are free and open to the public.

We hope to see you there!
