24 Hour Comics Day
24 hour comic day requires that you draw a 24 page comic in 24 hours. I took this opportunity to become reacquainted with an old character I used draw called the Rabid Dog Christ. Like his old owner, he seems to have lost some of his bite. I wasn't too happy about that but I recently looked at it again and decided the Dog Christ is on grand form, just a bit mellowed. I'm going to dig out the old stuff though and give the blasphemy laws a test run. (I doubt my scribblings will be of any interest to the authorities.)
I was drawing amongst other toonists in a hotel in Dublin city. I ran out of things for Dog Christ to do so a couple of others helped me with suggestions - hence the ball licking.
Anyway, here's the location of Dog Christ's Return
um, . . .enjoy?
P.S. I actually managed to finish everything but the text in 24 hours. This was cunningly achieved via the use of A5 paper (as opposed to sheets of paper the size of a kites like them other suckers)and f-all background detail.
P.P.S. They are adapting Rabid Dog Christ for the screen with heavyweight Thespian/insecure bully Russell Crowe cited for a role as Dog Christ's droppings.
P.P.P.S. My 24 hour comic managed to raise a staggering €22200,0000900.45 for my chosen charity (The Little Sister's of the Fearful Contraption were raising money for a Sri Lankan boy born with an arse for a head).
P.P.P.P.S. This kid showed up and drew a dog too. I didn't think his was very good.
