Hey folks, the baby hangover is finally starting to subside and my cartooning life is starting to take on some form of semblance. So, with the blessing of my family, I am tasking back onto the 24 Hour Comic trail and undertaking yet another installment of Bret Blackberg and the Fifty State Tour this Saturday, April 28th.
If you haven’t been paying attention (and I honestly can’t blame you with the lack of posts over the past…while), Bret Blackberg and the Fifty State Tour is a comic project started back in 2008. I am attempting to create a twenty-four hour comic (a comic completed within a 24 hour time frame) for each of the fifty states. Thus far I’ve completed nine chapters, all of which are linked at the end of this post.
Waitaminue…nine chapters already? That means I will have completed one fifth of this comic by the end of the weekend. BOSS!
Anyhow, if you would like to join me in this endeavor, I will be starting the day at Diamond’s Coffee Shoppe in Nordeast Minneapolis on Saturday, April 28th around 10 AM and lasting until about 9 PMish. After that I generally go home and ice my hand for a while, then draw alone, in the dark, crying all the while.
If you can’t make the event, or don’t want to, you can always check out progress and live tweeting on Twitter by following the #24×50 hashtag.
