4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42. All numbers some of us know well, but Ryan Estrada is mainly obsessed with just one number, the number 12. You see the Cartoon Commune is setting up its first major event set around the number twelve
On Saturday 12th April, artists around the world will be taking 12 hours to create a 12 page comic that they’ll publish either for themselves, online or just for their own amusement.
Ryan Estrada, organiser of this event, has been wanting to do a comic for a while since most of the stuff he’s worked on has been for the Cartoon Commune. “I’m always so backed up on paid work, I don’t have time to do my own stuff. And it’s been a while since I’ve done a good challenge comic.”
“I just knew that I don’t have time this month for a 24 hour comic, and plus I’ve done them to death…… Plus, shorter comics are actually harder, because it takes a while to get into a groove and get caught up.”
So set your calendars for the 12th April and get thinking, 12 pages in 12 hours. Think you have 12 on the brain?
