Hours TWENTY-THREE and FOUR or Winding Down

Hi Kids!

Parents are showing up to collect their kids and things are winding down. Michael finished "Stray Dog" and Paul has 13 pages in the can. He's saying it has something with the hard uncomfortable chairs and Jake is backing him up. Michael says that he had to stand up a lot. That helped. Pete has six pages done but he has assured us he'll finish it onaccounta he likes it.

BIG NEWS! Jeff has finished at 11:59! We are all in awe of his awesomeness in finishing so close to the deadline.

That's it! We're OUTTA HERE!

See youse next year!

Your pal,



Hi Kids!

Now I ask you, does this look like the face of an old man who has been up for 29 hours?

Here we are at hour 21 and Gwen has finished her comic, "Lola".

The sun is up and shining. The sky is a beautiful blue, not cloud in it and the temperature is a lovely, oh, I don't know, somewhere around 70, 75. Not that I want to boast or anything, but to those people who, like my friend, Chuck, from Chicago, when he got off the plane in Phoenix, saw all the sand, and said, "Where's the beach?", that's just the way it is almost every day here in the Land of Enchantment. I think the weather is the greatest thing about New Mexico. Unlike Phoenix, which is a blast furnace in the summer, we here in Q-Town enjoy mild, sunny winters and warm summers, the temperature rarely topping the century mark. And, it's a dry heat so you don't really even perspire all that much.

And you may wonder why I'm going on and on about all this. Well, the truth is Jake's camera battery died on us so I'm waiting for it to charge up enough so we can get Gwen's pic so the poor girl can go home and start the recovery process from this grueling ordeal. She's being so patient, bless her heart...
The battery has charged enough and we can now bid a fond and grateful farewell to Gwen.

And not only that, but while I was in the bathroom performing my morning ablutions, Stu finished his comic, too.

Here's Stu with his comic.
And Paul has gone for Starbuck's (the BAWLS is long gone, but you know, BAWLS is a proud sponsor of 24 Hour Comic Day). Bless his heart...
A lotta heart blessin' goin' on here, but then again, it is Sunday.


Sun's up and Aliina has finished her comic at 8:26. Here she is with her comic, "Roll".

Hour NINETEEN or The Sun Also Rises

And so sunrise comes to Harwood Art Center (boy, do I suck at photography, or what? This one's blurry, too.)


Hi Kids! Still enthusiastic--whatta trooper, eh?

Anyway, Courtney finished. As I recall, she finished about this time last year, too, except last year she finished first.

Sorry about the blurriness. The ace photo snapper is asleep...


Well kids, we've lost a few more to the Sandman. But not me. No sir. I'm still wide awake, er, sorta...

Here's Heron proudly displaying his finished comic.


Wha? Three in the morning already? Piece of cake--Z-z-z-z-z-z-z... Naw, I'm not really that tired yet...

Here's Nick playing with his DS. I can't tell what game he's playing.

Can you?

We have another finisher. His name is Heron and i'll post his pic in the next post...
