We raised $1631.80 for the Alberta Literacy Foundation.
Thanks to all who supported the event, it was amazing! Our book, "Happy Harbor's 24 Hour Comics Day 2005" should be ready in a couple months!
Who participated? (click on names for samples)
ANDREW FOLEY - A creator currently with Speakeasy Comics (mainly a writer) finished his effort, sore wrist and all. Read his web post recount of the day's events HERE.
BOB PRODOR - Penciled 24 pages but only inked about 20 before the quality of the work just wasn't working for him. What he did looks great!
BRIAN GUAY - Drove in from Edson (about an hour and half away) and was able to complete a gripping kidnapping story.
CHRIS WOOD - On a personal mission, he completed 10 very attractive pages.
DAMOND WILLIAMS - Squeezed us in between shifts and drew nearly 6 pages of story starring characters of his own creation.
DAVID WOLOSCHUK - 15 pages of "The Package", a clean, fun tale not to be taken too lightly.
STEPHEN FRITZ - Finished a tale with a flying pig. Yep, you read that right, bub.
MIKE DANFORTH - 20 penciled pages of murder / mystery storyline that will be sweet with finished inks.
MIKE MCDEVITT - Completed the adventures of Monkey McDevill, starring in the "World's Surliest Comics!"
MATTHEW GARDNER - 15 finished pages of a video gamers life gone wrong.
SUZUANNE NGO - 10 finished pages of "Left Eye", an attractive and fun tale.
TIINA FOLEY - Finished the very artistic "I Hate Paris" story that looks great when placed end to end.
TREVOR SIEBEN - "Waking Cthulu For Fun And Profit", a nicely finished endeavour.
Special thanks to Mr. Tom Grummett who stopped by and chatted with the creators.
We also had visitors for Access Television (filming for one of their programs), A-Channel Television, CFRN Television, CBC Radio and the Edmonton Journal. Many of them also followed up at the end of the event as well.
Everyone hard at work!
