24 Hour Comic (Part 1)

So I agreed to do a 24 hour comic in pencil about Cornish myths and legends for the "As Above So Below" comic marathon at the 64 Killigrew Street gallery in Falmouth.

If you're unfamiliar with the concept, a 24 hour comic is a 24 page comic devised and completed in 24 hours. According to the rules developed by Scott McCloud when he came up with the idea, the 24 hours have to be consecutive, but Scott McCloud didn't have to work full time in a library and I do - so I broke them up over the last week. Which sounds like it's easily manageable and you would probably still have enough time to go to St. Paul's Carnival on the Saturday - but I can tell you right now, you wouldn't.

Anyway, here's part 1 of what I ended up with. It's very rough and ragged, which was kind of the point. I did some research about the Cornish Owlman before starting  and had a really vague idea of where I wanted to go with it, but that all changed and it turned into a mad race to finish with no real idea what would happen from one page to the next. Which was pretty fun I suppose. I'll post the second part where it all goes a bit more bonkers next week.

The "As Above So Below" event also asked me some questions about my work and I answered them here: asabovesobelowshow.tumblr.com.
