Eeek, it’s nearly Hourly Comic Day again

Myfanwy Tristram Hourly Comic Day 2015

February 1st is Hourly Comic Day – a day when foolish people make a cartoon for every hour in which they are awake.

It presents you with two options:

If you are smart, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy as cartoonists around the world post up a rich deluge of comics on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and Flickr.

If you are a maniac, you can take part yourself.

I already know what I’ll be doing. Although, I am a little perturbed by the fact that, this year, Hourly Comic Day falls on a Monday.

For the main part of the day, I’ll be at my desk, working – which won’t make for very entertaining comics, and may also provide subject matter that I just can’t use if I want to keep my job.

We’ll see though. In the meantime, if you’d like to see my previous efforts, here’s last year’s, and here’s the one from 2014.

I also gathered together the best examples from other people, in 2014 and 2015.

The hashtag across all social media is (mainly) #hourlycomicday, although you may also find people using #hourlycomicsday.

Let me know if you’re going to take part… and good luck!
