The 4th edition of the 24-Hour Comics Day will start on Tuesday January 26, 2010 at 3 PM at the Maison des Auteurs.
Successfully launched three years ago, and based on a creative exercise with a specific condition, as popularized by the American Scott McCloud, the 24-Hour Comics Day became a meeting that cannot be ignored, in prelude to the International Comics Festival
The challenge : to design and create 24 pages in 24 hours, including front and back cover and 22 plates without text, working with a surprise clause which will be revealed at the kick-off of the event on Tuesday 26th of January, 2010, 3 pm.
Last year, more than 400 participants : professionals, art school students, amateurs participated in this drawing marathon.
Twenty five cartoonists were physically present in Angoulème at the Maison des Auteurs while all over France and abroad, professionals, students and amateurs gathered together in workshops, art schools and apartments, to participate in the event via the Internet. Their work was uploaded to the site as it progressed.
This year too, some of the cartoonists will be physically present in Angoulème whilst others will work at a distance within the same timeframe. Participants will work in three distinct categories: professionals, amateurs and art school students.
