A 23 hours drawing challengeLes 23H de la BD (literally "the twenty-three hours of comics") is a competition held every year in France among professional and amateur comic artists. It consists of drawing twenty-four pages of comics (these can be one image per page, and teams are allowed) in twenty-three hours. The theme of the comic and a special constraint are revealed at the very beginning of the twenty-three hours.
This year's theme was "Come on, this is not the end of the world!", and the constraint was to include a french kiss. This year again offered a special reward for those willing to reach forty-eight pages.
I teamed up with Sylvain NGuyen: he took the coloring, I took the drawing, and both of us worked on the scenario. Last year, we aimed at the forty-eight pages and wanted our story to be both poetic and simple, with as little text as possible, while carrying a strong theme. We decided to try the same kind of thing this year and chose the theme of long distance relationships.
- Managed to create 48 pages in 23 hours.
- Out of the 381 teams who took the challenge and the 193 that managed to complete it, we were one of the final eight teams who managed to create 48 pages.
