9th Art!

You guys! There's an exciting new Oxbridge comics magazine revving its engines. Its first issue (Oxford only) is online, and this Cambridge collective is on board to make sure the next issue's even better.

Everyone in Cambridge is encouraged to get drawing. Details are on the 9th Art website, the deadline is June 20th, and your pencil is on your desk, just there, yeah, right in front of you.

Hourly Comics Day 2011

Every February 1st, cartoonists everywhere simulteously set down every hour they're awake onto paper. It's an exercise in getting things done and in being creative quickly from little material. The result is Hourly Comics Day and it's impressive.

I took part this year, and, uh, accidentally kept going, since Feb 2nd was (oddly enough) both (a) pretty interesting and (b) involved lots of sitting around with time to draw. Click the images below to read the whole things!
