90 challengers from the public
(50 first-timers, 40 veterans)

  1. Wu Huijie (Veteran)
    Improve on my story telling and try out different comic genre
  2. Benjamin Chee (Veteran)
    Looking forward to embark on my yearly pilgrimage, and see what comes out of it this year. I usually do not think/prepare a story until the day of the event, and try to make something up spontaneously. To serendipity!
    Nominated for: Best Charsiew Tracker Award by Ray Toh
  3. Clio Ding (Veteran)
    I have been participating in 24hrs since it's inaugural year and find that it has always been the most productive 24 hours in my entire year, just sitting with a bunch of comrades doing what we like to do without interruption in the dead of the night. How often is one able to do that in the modern day society where our day jobs always takes priority over private creativity? Being a comic enthusiast, I'm definitely not going to miss this one!

    My goal is definitely to finish 24 pages of something I have not thought of. Should I draw more Kevin, or give myself a new challenge and take on something more complex, plot-driven and action based? Hmm.
    Nominated for: Cutest-Dino-ever creator award by James Leong
  4. Praveen Namasivayam (Veteran)
    This is a great creative outlet for me, and I loved the atmosphere and tone of the event the last time I took part. The challenge of 24 hours is a great motivator to getting stuff done. Hoping to team up with a good friend of mine who's a much better artist than me, and as always, looking forward to making some art!
  5. Chiang Yu Xiang (Veteran)
    24 hours 24 pages.
  6. Alfonsus Wong (Veteran)
    I'll be following the original rules of no direct preparation.

    My aim this year is to have fun, something I failed to do last year.
  7. Aung Cho Zan (Veteran)
    Last time challenge 2 years ago, I couldn't finish my comic because my story was very long winded and didn't say anything memorable. The comic was done with pencil sketches for all 24 pages but stuck at half way trying ink them.

    It's the choice of error on my part that i wanted to make something so long and so clean in 24 hours.

    This year, I haven't predominantly thought of a story but in terms of execution, i won't seek out to be a perfectionist and come up with faster drawings that are look good and finish fast. This is my Artistic goal.

    As for others, i'm an ex-lasalle student so coming back to lasalle doing this challenge means a lot to me for good old times. Plus my buddy is studying for BA there, i will join him just like old times.

    I want to finally finish 24 pages comic in 24 hours.
  14. Chris de Joya (Veteran)
    I have a story idea I want to try out.
  15. MaryAnn Loo (Veteran)
    Hmmmm... at this point in time I don't know what the real mission objective is, but definitely want to challenge myself to not think so much or dwell on how to get something done, but just jump in and do it. So somewhat like to overcome procrastination, but more about not letting myself over-think things, and just learn to trust my gut and my creative instinct to create 24 pages in 24 hours.
    Nominated for: Prettiest Canvas Comic Award by Megan Boey
  16. Hanse (Veteran)
    My goal is to improve on my storytelling skills and drawing speed this year. And, most importantly to enjoy myself and complete the event with a comic I am proud to call my own!

    Being a new father of three, I count my blessings that I am still able to draw and attend this event while juggling my duties as a father at home!

    Nominated for: 24 filial piety father (24孝爸爸) by Ong Hoey Siang
  17. Chew (First-timer)
    Haven't drawn a single comic yet - stuck at home doing studies.

    So this is an attempt to see my current standard.
  18. Raj (Veteran)
    Another year and back again with more whacky nocturnalia on paper :D
  19. Tran Dac Trung (First-timer)
    I have done a few comics of my own, but somehow after completion it always feels like my comics lack something (beside my inadequate art). And I never feel satisfied with my story either.

    This challenge is where I hope to force myself to illustrate a simple story, with more focus on storytelling rather than the complex scope of the story itself. A man and a dog, a kid on the street, those are the type of stories I want to make into a comic for this competition.
    Nominated for: Super Good At Using Markers Award by Megan Boey
  20. Theodore Teo (Veteran)
    I have always been a perfectionist and therefore would procrastinate a lot would like to take my opportunity to break that procrastination. Even though I am not as talented as some other people who can easily whip out a good drawing in one shot, I want to see what it would be like ACTUALLY finishing a comic for once.
  21. Charlene (First-timer)
    I've built up a lot of stories in my head since I first started drawing and I want to challenge myself to put at least one of them into motion!
  22. Dinah Wee (Veteran)
    Hello!!! This will be my fourth time participating in the actual challenge.

    What I appreciate about 24HCD is that it proves that things can indeed be done, which is very encouraging. You grow with each challenge and find your own individual way to get stuff done.

    My goals are to simply have fun, and create a little something I would personally cherish.

    I have started a very small preparation in the form of an interactive mini-comic, which embarrassingly needs a bit more commitment.
  23. Andrew Wong (Veteran)
    I will use this opportunity to create a short scenario that has been on my mind for quite some time now.
  24. Ong Hoey Siang (First-timer)
    I'm going to do 8-10 pages of comics. The challenge for me is to complete a comic making process within 24 hours non stop.
  25. Roro Mina Anindya (First-timer)
    I've been dealing with depression and eating disorder for almost 5 years now. I spent my entire teenage years feeling miserable and that SUCKS !! I'm so sick of feeling useless and unworthy all the time. This challenge will be the start of the new me. I want to show myself that I actually can accomplish something and I'm not a friggin failure. I SWEAR i'll finish this even if it's the last thing i'll do.

  26. Clement Ng (First-timer)
    This is my first time participating, I hope to gain more experience and confidence in making comics. My goal is to finish all 24 pages.
  27. Kelly Bender (First-timer)
    I will be trying to write a complete comic book script in 24 hours.

    That's 1 page an hour.

    I will NOT be drawing.

    I will be writing a new script (either based off of an existing property of mine or something new)

    It's important to me to help spread the word of comic books in Singapore and to get energized by the amazing art & writing talent we have here.
    Nominated for: Most Prolific Creator from Canada and Devoted Family Guy by JF Koh
  28. Danger Gene! (Veteran)
    Our mission? To draw the best damn funnybooks a person can draw inside of 24. Our goal? To survive and bring back the gold... I mean, the paper! Viva el comic book!

  29. Jansen Low (Veteran)
    I've done 24HCD only once in 2011 to challenge to test myself against the pros. A lot has happened in my life since then but unfortunately, nothing much on my drawing skills. :p

    Coming back to rekindle and strength old friendships and acquaintance and at the same time have fun! And of course, to make up lost time in drawing...
  30. Anson Tan (Veteran)
    To create and exciting story towards young amd mature demographic, this time I'll bring new skills I learned over the course of 1 year.

    Creating smiles and laughter hopefully.
  31. Jasmine Chia (Veteran)
    Recently, while joining D&D sessions with my buddies, Andrew came up with an idea of drawing out our adventures into a 4-column manga. But due to laziness or fatigue (don't know which one lol) after a full day of work, I didn't manage to do one. What a shame! My resolution for this year's event is complete a couple of them. Osu!
  32. caleb tan (First-timer)
    ive been saying "i'll do it next year" for the longest time. i want to start saying "i'll do it next year again but better than this year's".
  33. Tan Jek Jan (First-timer)
    To make tons of new friends and SURVIVE the 24 hours
  34. Christal Kuna (Veteran)
    This will be my fourth 24HCD, and as usual for the past two, the main draw's meeting lots of awesome people! I've made less art in this year than any other since I started drawing seriously, so it's also just to force myself to get some sort of creative output.

    For this year's challenge I'm hoping to do a team variation and collaborate with a writer friend, which will be something entirely new. We'll see what happens!
  35. Shi Mun Woo (First-timer)
    I've always enjoyed drawing, especially comics, hence nothing will make me feel more alive than to do nothing but draw comics. Joining this event will also help me to concentrate on works which I have been thinkibg of but have yet to draw, and give me more inspiration by hanging out with like-minded people
  36. James Leong (Veteran)
    Like last year, I will be participating in Team Variation with a writer-partner.
    It was done digitally last year so I will try something traditional: paper, pens, pencils, watercolors, brush and eraser.
    24 pages of madness with a bunch of insanely funny enthusiasts under the same roof 24 hours!
    Where else can you find such fun?
    Lets Rock!

  37. Ho Wai Hong (Veteran)
    I have a habit of not finishing the things I start. Let's see where we are with respect to this.
    Nominated for: Most Fantastic Vegetarian Comic Artist by Ong Hoey Siang
  38. Mervin Chee (First-timer)
    Will be pacing myself to push out a working short story within the 24hrs, as well as make to new friends & drawing kakis!
  39. Eurika Yusin Gho (First-timer)
    Drawing straight for 24 hours is something I have never done before, which makes me feel pretty excited to give it a go.
  40. Valkyrie (First-timer)
    Trying a 4-Hour Comics. I want to try challenging my creativity, and it's an outlet for me to discharge the pessimism that has been building up in me for the past year. I want to start with something small; not too stressing for me.
  41. Natalia (First-timer)
    i want to experience an environment surrounded by fellow artists trying to complete our goals.
    and hopefully make a friend or two.

    i want to see how far i can go.

    and of course, hopefully be able to finish 24 pages in 24 hours!
  42. June Ong (Veteran)
    Doing the team variation with Amy Ong
  43. kelvin chan (First-timer)
    See what I'm capable of achieving in 24hrs
    Nominated for: Best Father-Daughter Combo by JF Koh
  44. Woofer Rae (First-timer)
    See if I can do it
  45. Cai Lixian (Veteran)
    This is important because I've missed the last 2 or 3 24-hour comic days! Also, I find that it's always great to sit down for 24 hours to force myself to finish one of the many stories that float around my head. And as always, the challenge to finish 24 pages in 24 hours excites me.
  46. Maggie Hon (First-timer)
    This is my first time to participate in this event, and also the first time to do comics(beside a storyboard). I'll try my best to complete 24 pages within 24 hours, in a fun and relaxing way. Hopefully I'm still awake in the middle of the night.=D

    We'll see how it goes!!
  47. Quek Ming Wei (Veteran)
    Yes, yes and yes -- all of the above. I tend to deliberate on my ideas so much and for such a long time that I eventually forget why I had those ideas in the first place, or lose interest in them, or (horrors!) come to the conclusion that they're lousy and therefore not worth working on.

    Which is why I hope I can push myself as much as I can through this challenge, hopefully in an analogue medium that gives no room for the OCD side of me to redo any mistakes. Because those mistakes are part of the process. And I want to learn to be proud of them (preferably with a crazy laugh) than to cringe at the sight of them.

    (Big thanks too to my good friend who jio-ed me again to this event even though I'd earned a Noble Failure as a home participant back in 2012. :>)
  48. Calvin Chua (First-timer)
    Energy field
    I experienced it during the last few weeks of my final year project submission in university, where everyone around doing things that really mean something to them, with deadlline closing in. Now I want to feel it again!!

    Project and Management
    Hopefully the result can be helpful for my 2nd book. I understand my limitation, but will try to push it whenever possible, not too concern on this part.
  49. Wayne Rée (Veteran)
    There are things. Sometimes I write them. One of those things will be with Danger Gene. That thing is a comic. Words. Pictures. Alchemy! BOOM!

  50. Danial Seman (First-timer)
    To make my first ever full comic
  51. Sarah Moses (First-timer)
    I've been meaning to draw a comic for some time but always leave them in their draft stage so this will be a goal for me to complete a good oneshot.
    Nominated for: Owner Of Cutest Horsy Pillow Award by Megan Boey
  52. Hoo yan han (First-timer)
    I've always doodled short, one paged comics but never tried a full length one; I have inklings of a story idea but never got around to developing it. Hopefully this will help me stop my procrastination and finally let me get it out of my system!
  53. Woo Ying Tong (First-timer)
    I have generally failed at comics, by doing nothing. At least now if I fail, I will be failing at doing Something. And hopefully, it will be the beginning of overcoming that fear of failing at something I love.
  54. Loke Mun Mun (First-timer)
    To get out of my comfort zone as an illustrator, and to just YOLO on 24 pieces of paper. To find out if my work done in a rush could still meet the legit standard... To enjoy going overnight with my friend who draws as well... 😅 Any more I think I'd go cray cray haha
  55. Chua Eng Chee (Veteran)
    Hi, I'm going to try to finish 8 to 10 pages of comic. This is a good catalyst to start a project I've been wanting to embark on.
  56. Tan Kwang Yang (Veteran)
    Just wanna complete a comic.
  57. Marcus Lin (Veteran)
    So over the past few times of 24h comics, I'd managed to somewhat pull it off, but the polish and readability of the comic tends to go haywire, partly because i didn't have any thing in mind prior to event.

    This year, I'm entering with some preparation work done, and aiming to do a 12-hours variation, 12 pages with polish in mind.
  58. Kelwin Kwan (Veteran)
    Complete a 12-page comic!
  59. Shamine King (First-timer)
    I draw all day every day, and while I love my sleep it's an interesting challenge I've wanted to try for a few years now. I'm a perfectionist who likes to plan things in advance so this will be something new.
  60. Andrew Chow (Veteran)
    To have fun and meet old friends.
  61. Seetoh Jian Qing (First-timer)
    My goal is just to have fun. I am not any good at drawing- or at any creative ventures in particular. But this sounds fun. I think I am going to have a lark.
  62. Cid Lacuesta (First-timer)
    I want to be able to overcome laziness and procrastination, two of the things holding me back in my creative progress.
    Nominated for: Talking To Paper To Make It Dry Faster Award by Megan Boey
  63. Eugene Lim (Veteran)
    Back again, here's hoping my wrist doesn't hurt at the end!
  64. Kaderman (First-timer)
    hiya! Aiming for 20 - 24 panels in 24 hrs. main aim is to finish and clean up later. good luck everybody!
  65. Yvonne Ng (First-timer)
    I am getting rather tired of dreaming up ideas, penning them down and then consequently losing them into this growing pile of dust, set aside and never visited again. Real life can be a BIG distraction sometimes.

    This will be a great chance to challenge myself to finish what I have started - against a realistic goal, there will be less chance to procrastinate and lapse into extreme perfectionism.

    I feel that with working experience, I have become a different person. I know that my eye is a better judge now, my heart is in the right direction and my hands are certainly used to creating better things now. The ultimate result will attest to it, I know!
  66. Hamimah Nordin (First-timer)
    I want to do the 4-hour variation.
  67. Francis Mathew Wong (First-timer)
    I've always wanted to create and finish my own comic, I guess this is a perfect opportunity to force myself to do it (because I'm a lazy bum and I need things forced on me...that didn't sound right). Pretty much the stuff mentioned on the "Mission Objective" sums up why I want to participate...plus getting to meet new people is always a treat.
  68. Gary Choo (First-timer)
    I've been doing illustration with too much careful planning and never truly done sequential art before. With the 24hr challenge perhaps it can be more forgiving. Just giving it a shot and looking at what I can do in 24 hours with a style that's more raw and viable.
    Nominated for: Biggest Underachiever Award by Jerry Teo
  69. Reuben Liang (First-timer)
    Will be working with a super-talented (and humble) artist friend of mine to create a comic collab! (altho' I'm mostly just thinking of story ideas)

    I'm curious about finding new ways to tell old stories (there ain't nothing new under the sun, but each flower blooms differently), and I'm honoured to have a partner who is committed to translating those ideas into a visual artform :)

    Personally, I'm also a huge fan of Steven Pressfield's conception of the Muse, and I hope to be a worthy vessel - but I'm a bit rusty, so really, if I do come up with anything at all that's vaguely comprehensible and meaningful at the same time... yay\o/

    Definitely am joining this competition to see where my edge is when it comes to story telling (more so that I can shine it when I get back, then to actually flaunt it)... and of course, the challenge of adapting to a crazy work schedule (thank goodness for fellow artist friend)! :D
  70. Kwong Han Jie (Veteran)
    Last year, I managed to draw up 24 Pages of 4-Koma within the time limit. However, I had a script, which made it alot easier to accomplish so for this year, I'll be doing the same challenge of 24 Pages, except I will only be going in with a basic plot in mind to challenge myself on spontaneous story creation and I will be doing a full fledged 24 page comic instead, which will be a first for me.
  71. Cynthia Tedy (Veteran)
    Draw something more fine-tuned while maintaining a good speed along the process. And of course to enjoy the event itself!
    Nominated for: Ridiculously impressive 24 pages completed in under 12 hours by Chris Shaw
  72. Matthew Graham (Veteran)
    I have a big problem with perfectionism, and end up taking way too much time on art pieces and drawings. After participating as a student last year, I found that I can actually be greatly productive if I give myself concrete deadlines. I wish to practice that again this year! Also I just really, really like comics.
  73. Lim Tin Yuen (First-timer)

  78. Azridjokoloro (First-timer)
    I'm always slow at drawing, so I guess this is where I test my speed. I've never drawn a comic before so yeah maybe it's time I try something new too. And usually halfway drawing at home I'll end up in the kitchen looking for food. Hahaha.. Oh yeah I wanna make new friends too!

    I've always wanted a challenge. And I've always loved comics. Been sketching on and off in my life. I want to better understand both my work, and myself. I want my story to be told. Expressing myself through this medium has given me more satisfaction then most things have.

    I have always enjoyed making my own stories and to share my stories with the public has always been one of my biggest dreams. The things that have been holding me back from my dream include my bad drawing and writing skills and low self-confidence.

    My goals are to complete a comic of one of my stories, learn more from others in the process, and most importantly boost my confidence.

    This challenge is good to push me to finish a project in one go, and take confidence in the story I've thought up instead of second guessing and changing it all the time (which sometimes result in not finishing the project at all).
    It's also a good practice to draw faster.
