Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So today is February 1, Hourly Comic Day. Here is what John from Pictures for Sad Children wrote about it (it is his idea and you can read the original here. I thought this might be a fun thing to do here. I'd like to challenge everybody to give it a go.
HOURLY COMIC DAY
hello! on february first a bunch of people make a journal comic every hour they are awake. and then they show these journal comics to other human beings, sometimes on the internet
we will see how different people actually spend their day. some people will make beautiful comics, some ugly. some boring, some exciting.
-for every hour that you are awake on february first (that's february first for whatever time zone you happen to be in), you make a comic describing something about the past hour. maybe you ate some cereal? maybe your mother called and screamed long and low and then went silent forever?
-say you wake up at 7am. make a comic some time before it becomes 8am! then after 8am, make a comic before it becomes 9am! it is pretty simple.
-when you are done, scan the comics in and post them on the message board (this year's will be HERE,last year's was HERE.) , so we can all look at each other's days. i think that will be neat
you can e-mail me if you want to call me names, and you can look at what i've been doing for an example. you do not have to be a fancy drawer to do this
