Stan Yan's 24 Hour Comics

Irregularly

This comic was created on 10/2/2010 from 12 pm - 10/03/2010 11 am during 24 Hour Comics Day at I Want More Comics in Westminster Colorado.  The premise was provided by John Peters:

"A man walking home from work spots an odd looking vending machine. What he thought was a cute girl figure turns out to be a real live 10" Genie who proceeds to grant three wishes for the man.

The catch - after the third wish, the Genie dies. The man refuses to make the wish, but the genie keeps insisting. Granting wishes is her purpose."

I decided to go with a simple stick figure art style (which is actually the basis for everything I draw -- the underneath structure of my characters) that I developed in my 2010 Comic-Con Report, since I was going to try something new and do the entire story in watercolors.

When up for 24 hours, it's hard to catch inconsistencies, which I will point out via comment under the panels.

My process went like this:

Noon - 1 pm: plotted out story

2 pm - 10 pm: rough pencil layouts

10 pm - 11 pm: inked lettering

11 pm - 11 am: watercolors and linework

Okay, he wasn't walking home from work when he found the vending machine.  I don't know where I lost sight of this, but he's at work later!
