Come see me draw my SIXTEENTH 24 Hour Comic (a World Record until someone tells me different) this weekend. After jaunts to Eugene and New York, I’m back on home ground. The 24 Hour Comics – Portland Edition is taking place from 10:00am on Sat., May 18th to 10:00am on Sun., May 19th at Things From Another World (2916 NE Broadway St.).Things From Another World is easy to find if you know Portland- it’s just at the spot where you turn on Broadway to go to Fred Meyer’s.

An advance copy of my latest book arrived from my publisher last week. EVERYBODY GETS IT WRONG! (AND OTHER STORIES): DAVID CHELSEA’S 24 HOUR COMICS VOLUME 1  collects my first six (of fifteen so far) 24 hour comics between hard covers. The book will not be in stores until June 5th, but you COULD beat the rush and pre-order it from Amazon today.

24 Hour Comic #14: The Crumb Bums

Last weekend, for the second year running, I accepted an invitation to spend 24 Hour Comics Day as a guest at the Imagination International event in Eugene, organized by Ken O’Connell of The University Of Oregon. This year’s event was bigger than last year’s, with about twenty participants, and it attracted the attention of local TV outlet KVAL.

Here’s a story from the KVAL website- there was also a report on the 6 O’Clock News, but they don’t seem to have posted the video.

Art Of The Graphic Novel At Diva


I’m in an upcoming show at DIVA, The Downtown Initiative For The Visual Arts in Eugene, Oregon. The Art of the Graphic Novel + 24 Hour Comics runs from October 7th through November 19th. The opening reception is this Friday from 5:30-7:30pm. It’s free until 7:30pm, there will be food and drink and it’s during Eugene’s Art Walk, which brings about 300+ people through the doors (Just don’t expect to see me there. I went down last week for 24 Hour Comic Day- about which I’ll post soon- and I’ll be back on the 22nd for a perspective talk. That’s enough travel for one month!)
