Hourly Comics Day

I'm posting this pretty darn late, but Friday was Hourly Comics Day! I decided to draw each hour as a page in my new sketchbook (and I finally got around to scanning them all):


I used a couple of pens, and a variety of rather bleedy markers to ink and color the pages. The style isn't too terribly consistent here, and the execution kind of messy, but I had a lot of fun doing these:
















And what the heck, here is the page of warm ups I did (to test out my pens and markers):

Also, check out these magnificent hourly comics by:

Stu Livingston
Carrie Liao
Anthony Holden
...Who else did one? Holler so I can read your pretty comics and add your links!
