(x-posted from my comment on a Boing Boing article on 24HCD)
I used the opportunity of 24HCD to accomplish a 24 Hour Comics Day first: a 24 Hour Comic made entirely on an iPod Touch/iPhone; writing, research, art, uploading and Tweeting updates.
The happy (and successful!) result of piling one challenge on another begat "Daruma Every Day" and can be seen here:
The art was created using Steve Sprang's badass Brushes app, with apps like cool fx and Photo Finish for textures and finishes. My 24hc is also the first made with Brushes.I was hosted by Dragon's Lair San Antonio, and I'm the point person for next years' event.
Some additional notes:
I had to electrical tape my charge cord connector back together. The plastic on the connector popped off on Thursday. I couldn't find a new one ANYWHERE. The charger went to its final rest about an hour ago. I noticed it was getting hot, and that was that. RIP, brave and junky charger.
I had a GREAT time at Dragon's Lair! We started with Bob, Richard and Elin. The evening shift was Cliff, Brian and Becca. Bob stayed with Summer, Will and I overnight. In the very wee hours, the worst of a record-breaking storm that brought flooding rolled through, with a crack of thunder loud enough to make me jump violently and yell.
Earlier in the evening, we had pizza with Cliff, Brian and Becca. Becca went out to HEB before she left for the night and got us Frosted Mini Spooners (cheap mini wheats), bananas and Red Bull. It sounded really (the wheats and bananas, anyway) healthy until one contemplated the combo as a whole. I pulled a one-pound bag of Twizzlers from my bag and shook it, "When Becca's gone, we TWIZZ!"
As all other years, the challenge was transformative and revealing, harrowing and exciting, yet meditative above all.
Thanks to Dragon's Lair and staff for hosting and to Scott McCloud for inventing such a simple yet amazing tool.
