I was lucky enough to be invited to Plymouth University’s 24 hour comic event – Leviathan. Part of Plymouth’s international book week. Myself and 11 talented artists started drawing at 12 noon on Wednesday 19th September, the aim was to create a 24 page comic (inspired by Moby Dick) by 12 noon the next day. I managed to complete mine in 22 hours and 40 mins.. It’s actually the first comic I’ve ever made. Having also re-read The Diceman by Luke Rhineart recently I decided to use a six sided die to make decisions on what happened next in my story. This certainly helped me when I was stuck and led to some drawings I would certainly never have made otherwise. It was very inspiring to work alongside some brilliant artists.
