Februrary 1st is hourly comic day! This means you make a comic for every hour you are awake and alive during that day. Description from john campbell:


hello on february first a bunch of people make a journal comic every hour they are awake. and then they show these journal comics to other people on the internet

we will see how different people spend their day.

-for every hour that you are awake on february first (that’s february first for whatever time zone you happen to be in), you make a comic describing something about the past hour. maybe you ate some cereal? maybe your mother called and screamed long and low until her voice gave out

-say you wake up at 7am. make a comic some time before it becomes 8am. then after 8am, make a comic before it becomes 9am. it is pretty simple.

-when you are done, scan the comics in and post them on the message board (this year’s will be HERE, last year’s was HERE.)

you can e-mail me if you want to, and you can look at what i’ve done for an example. you do not have to be a fancy drawer to do this


I’m gonna do it and post it here! You should too!

PS here’s a really nice one by Lucy Knisley for some inspiration

I assume this isn’t the same thing as 24-hour comic day.

Nope! You’re not required to stay up for 24 hours and you’re not required to make 24 pages once you’re done. Just a little strip for each hour that you’re awake and with it is enough. No need to go crazy. Here’s one my friend did:

But what if it takes a whole hour to make a single comic strip?

I guess you can work on it later? I wouldn’t worry too much about making beautiful works of art. Just have fun with it. They can be stick figures with bubbles. It’s nice to see how people spend their day :>
