Last weekend I celebrated Mini-Comics Day with my fiancée and friends. Our friend Eden played host. The goal is to make short comics, typically 8 pages, using simple folded paper and staplers with pencils, markers, crayons, and pens.
Read on to see the two comics I created, Time Dancer and Power Teens.
My first comic that I made ended up becoming Time Dancer. We all went in with no pre-planning. I just drew each page as it came up. It’s a free-flowing exercise. I definitely recommend trying it with friends if you have not done it before. Another great event that’s similar is 24 Hour Comics Day where you try to draw a page an hour for one full day. Krissy, Carolyn and I have all done that as well.
Once I finished Time Dancer, I decided I felt like creating another comic but decided to set an additional obstacle for myself. I would do it within an hour. I give you… Power Teens.
