This week on Patreon, I wind up the serialization of my most recent 24 Hour Comic, ROUND BACK GLASSES, with the 17th and final page. In it, I come face to face with a neighbor whose glasses are even cooler than mine:

Today I begin serializing ROUND BLACK GLASSES on Patreon, my 18th and most recent 24 Hour Comic, which I drew on 24 Hour Comic Day 2017 between 9 am Saturday October 7th, and 9 am Sunday October 8th, at the Enthusiasm Collective in Portland, OR. This was my first ever digital 24 Hour comic, drawn and colored in Photoshop and laid out and lettered in Adobe Indesign. This week’s installment posts pages one and two out of 17 (I fell somewhat behind on my plan, but I did manage to complete a “Gaiman Variation”, what is what you call it when you work for 24 hours, but produce less than 24 pages).

We’re well into the fall, and I have posted only sporadically the entire summer, so it’s time I caught you loyal readers up on what I’ve been doing. One big thing was that I concluded my webcomic ARE YOU BEING WATCHED?, which I have been serializing on Patreon for the past two years. You can read the entire run of the strip on Tumblr here, at least for a while- there are plans in the works for a book version, and I will most likely take down the archive when that comes out.

I have been posting a lot lately about 24 HOUR COMIC, the new documentary in which I appear, as well as my recently concluded webcomic ARE YOU BEING WATCHED? However, I have another big project this summer, my latest instructional book PERSPECTIVE IN ACTION, which you can buy from Amazon.com using the link below:
24 HOUR COMIC is turning into the Little Film That Could! It’s on iTunes main page on the pre sales charts… #2 on docs and #30 overall right up there with Snatched and Rough Night! Not bad for a tiny budget doc! Thanks to everyone who pre-ordered!! If you haven’t and you like supporting indie projects you have one more day to preorder. See if we can become #1 doc by this Tuesday when we release!
Meanwhile, the theatrical screenings of the film last week at the Laurelhurst went as well as we could possibly have hoped. There was a near-full house for the screening Thursday evening, and a robust turnout for the matinee on Friday. Thanks to everyone who came out!

Last night was the long-awaited theatrical premiere of 24 HOUR COMIC, the documentary film directed by Milan Erceg, in which I appear along with seven the other artists including my daughter Rebecca, drawing– what else?– 24 hour comics. The premiere at the Laurelhurst Theater in Portland went well; we had a near-full house, the audience laughed in all the right places, and there was a lively question-and-answer session afterward. My fellow participant (and ARE YOU BEING WATCHED? colorist) Jacob Mercy still refuses to watch the film, but showed up for the q and a and seemed to have a pretty good time despite his misgivings. Rebecca (thirteen at the time of filming, seventeen now) was unfortunately barred from attending due to restrictive Oregon Liquor Control Commission rules, but she will be on hand for a matinee showing today at the theater at 4 PM. If you missed the first time, even if you didn’t, I urge you to attend.
24 HOUR COMIC matinee with Q&A
Friday, 4-6 PM,
2735 E Burnside St, Portland, OR 97214
l’ll be on KBOO-FM radio today at 11:30 am PDT to talk about the film with Milan and KBOO host S.W. Conser. Listen in Portland at 90.7 FM, or worldwide on the web.
