BOOF!

[nggallery id=1]
BOOF! is a strange little comic from this year’s 24 Hour Comic Book Day in SF. All 24 pages of story where written, drawn, and painted in one consecutive 24hr period. BTW, this is my first 24hr Comic since last year’s Robots Don’t Know Anything About Twitter.

Aside from the typical time constraints of a 24hr comic, I decided to add a couple more personal goals:
1. Story is told with images only (no text)
2. Create my first fully colored comic book
3. Format it for the iPhone screen
4. Keep it more serious than my typical comics

I have to say I’m happy with the end result. I really pushed myself into areas where I feel uncomfortable artistically. It’s not my favorite comic I’ve ever created, but I feel like some of the lessons I learned from working on it have stuck with me… for example, The Greatest Costume Ever story feels a lot like BOOF!

Aside from the embedded comic (above), I have all the pages up on Flickr… or you can download the BOOF! as a CBZ file or big ol’ PDF.

Thanks again to Mission Comics and Art, Comic Outpost, Self Edge, Ritual Roasters, Robogames, and Anthony’s Cookies for support our 24hr event in SF.

  7. […] 1234…262728► As my “week of comics” continues, I’ve decided to (re-)post Oke Rosgana’s The Magic Yo-Yo. As mentioned previously, this comic was made by Rosgana as part of the 2009 24hr Comic Book Day from his home in Indonesia. I’m posting it today partly because I wanted to add to get it online as an embedded gallery, but mostly because The Magic Yo-Yo was a HUGE inspiration for my 24hr comic BOOF!. […]

  10. […] So please stay tuned starting at around 11am for some sort of announcement and details on how we can create a comic book together. I’m still feeling under the weather, but the goal is still to write and draw a 24 page book entirely within a 24hr period. I’ll probably just do pen (and brush) and ink, without any color, but who knows. I did really enjoy the year I did a watercolored 24hr book. […]
