24HCD presents… Ryan Griffiths

October 5, 2011

I fell asleep around 4am on Saturday, all 11 artists were still diligently working on their comic. Most of them weren’t exactly sitting up straight anymore, more hanging on one arm or hunched over their page in painful solitude. It was rough! Especially if one of the organisers is cuddling up on the couch under a duve right in front of you and has a delightful 5 hour sleep.

When I woke up around 8h30, Ryan had left already. His fellow colleagues said he was suffering big time and decided to go home.

We lost him.. but we got his 14 pages! And I hope he will finish themΒ  at a later stage coz I really enjoyed reading them.

Check his pages here: Ryan Griffiths

24HCD presents.. Karabo Makenna

October 4, 2011

I am Karabo Makenna, but go by DIZZY TYD, Im a 26 year old graphic designer/Illustrator, currently completing a creative internship at The Jupiter Drawing Room and my work is mostly influenced by my exposure to many different local cultures and my interest or rather obsession with street art. I have always been in awe of the limitless directions the visual arts have taken and have decided to be a part of this movement, I absolutely luuuurve skateboarding and do a lot of drawing in my spare time, these 2 worlds often meet… The opportunity of being part of the 24HCD was the most Intense creative project iv ever heard of or encountered, Im creatively richer for it because i got to push my drawing and conceptual strengths, and expose my weaknesses so i can work on them to be come a better illustrator.Β  The opportunity to interact with other cartoonist and illustrators was also greatly rewarding, as we shared some of our stories as struggling artist πŸ™‚ This made me aware that shared creative experience is better than creatively working on your own.

You can see some of my work at these links:

24HCD presents.. the 24-hour comics

October 3, 2011

Sjoe, that went well! 24HCD ended on Sunday 14h45. Six artists made the 24 pages, four survived the 24 hours but not the 24 pages, and three did not make the 24 hours.

Personally, I didn’t make the 24 hours. Somewhere around 4am I drifted off on the couch and only resumed conscious at 8h30. So much for my plan to keep posting all through the night..

Most of the guys didn’t sleep, hardly even got up for a smoke or a toilet break. They sat behind those 24 pages for 24 hours! Respect!

So, now we got 6 full comics and 4 unfinished comics which will be published one every day on this blog. The winners will be put up last, of course πŸ™‚

First unfinished comic is by Atang Tshikare. Atang was part of the Co/Mix crew that set up the exhibition in Grahamstown and also part of the Co/Mix crew that organised the 24HCD. He does freelance illustration work for Chimurenga, Adidas and Puma. But his real passion is customising everything from shoes to skateboards to bicycles.

It’s 1h38 now, people still drawing, some yawning, some hiding in a dark places, some full out on the couch. Some on their 12th page, some on their 4th page. And I’m left with the keys to the bar, time for a round on the house I say.
