A Penguin Adventure
by MaryAnn Loo

My personal challenge this year was to create 24 paintings in 24 hours. But once the clock started, I realized I also wanted to create a story with these 24 paintings. Here is that story. I have also included words that go with the pictures, though they are not the final version that I plan to write up and publish into a book!

All these paintings were created on 6x6 in. canvas panel using acrylics for the backgrounds, and watercolor and ink on watercolor paper for the characters.

All That Flitters
by Reuben Liang and Christal J. Kuna

24h comic #4 arriveth! The unique points for this year's #24hcdsg - team variation, all thinking and planning on the day itself, and apparently a landscape format.

Huge props to my comicollaborater Reuben for being game enough to try out the challenge as a writer (yay first-timer!) and being very understanding of my finicking and flailing and "...I don't think I can draw that"s, and consequently compromising so it'd be something quite manageable. Phew.

Much appreciation to JF Koh for organizing this rad event once again, and for the prizes - we're extremely honored!- as well as all the fantastic creative people I get to meet there for making it super fun. And the hosts of radio station 502, who deserve special mention but need little introduction.

This Is Not Your Story
by Benjamin Chee

Fifth 24HCD! Thanks again to JF Koh, the Storyzer crew, Chris Shaw, and the Lasalle staff for organizing it. More laid-back this year, playing with something more random again, taking the opportunity to draw what I normally wouldn't =P And had fun meeting up and drawing alongside many friends, selling books, and being aimed at by a rolling camera.

Untitled (coz I haven't figured it out yet)
by Jerry Teo

The original story didn't fit the art direction of the pages and I had to chop it up. So its become this mangled tale. Which could've been a blessing in disguise because its more open to interpretation. The original would've explained things a lot more and perhaps taken away space for readers to contemplate what it is to them.

West Fury
by James Leong and Franken Doll

Once upon a time in the west, Sam took the fall for a crime that was shared by two friends, doing hard time for 15 years, and making sacrifices for the sake of friendship. But when his two buddies received him with a final farewell, Sam was devastated. Eventually, Sam decided to make things right by taking back the good life that he was denied. However, fate has its own way…

A Letter to Her Art
by Christal J. Kuna

A more personal piece with a bit of history of how I started drawing, why I kept drawing lots of wolves, and why I haven't been drawing much of anything lately.

My self-imposed constraint this year was doing a comic in full color, and despite a lot of weird and wonky choices, I managed to finish way early and have lots of time to wander around after. Wahey!

Big Iron

This is the "Director's Cut" version. I've added several more pages to ensure the story flows better.

This round sorts of progresses the story of the Dirty Ditto Wars.. Tried a totally different way of drawing for this round..

Since then, what I have done so far is to add a little shading, the dialogue, as well as 3 more pages to make the story flow smoother.. Enjoy!

Humorduino - The Rise of Open Hardware
by William Hooi

With much trepidation, I upload the 10-hour maiden attempt to draw something that looked like a comic, borrowing 'Horrible History'-style without realizing that as a noob in the room of comic greats, I should have stuck to having more sketches than lines. The last time I've done something like this is when I was a 12-year old trying to pass time poking fun at everything during free period when the teacher is either absent or asleep. Disclaimer: the pages are not meant to offend anyone or organization but to offer some personal satirical perspective for the sake of being part of this comic marathon. Personally, I've learnt much in this attempt: I resolve to treat this as a social event rather than an 'exam'. It's really cool to see other artists with different styles and picking up new terminologies. Some works are bizarre and others rather cleverly done. I hope to participate in the next event with more thought put into the storyline. Many thanks to JF and other organizers for bringing this event into fruition.

Little Fish in the Big Ocean
by Kay Cee

I only did 16 pages - 2 stories of 8 pages each ... the coloured comic took a long time, and that's why i did the second one in monochrome. Both of these stories are based on dreams that I had, so they may or may not make sense to you, but they make perfect sense to me.

Aftermination
by Clio DX

AFTERMINATION is a short story about a poor dead comic artists' tour to the afterworld with a mysterious tourguide who introduces nothing but disaster.

I participated in the Inaurugal 24 hours comic day in Singapore on 2-3 october 2010. Although I'm 3 pages short of the total 24 pages goal, I'm please to have made at least some productive progress. All of the thinking, writing and drawing are done on the day itself. I have learnt that character splash pages is a good way to cheat.
