So – was it more difficult completing Hourly Comic Day on a working day?
You bet it was. There’s not very much of visual interest to draw, and it means you have to do a full day’s work and then put in several hours drawing into the night.
I saw a few canny people shifted theirs to Sunday, and I’m beginning to see what a good idea that is. If you were really clever, you could even draw your frames on the Sunday and then schedule them to go out once an hour on Twitter the next day… or is that just too duplicitous?
I was really looking forward to Hourly Comic Day but actually… I’d forgotten that it can be quite stressful, what with aching shoulders as you hunch over your pages, the insecurity of seeing everyone else’s work pouring out (and of course it’s *all excellent*), and the hardest thing for me, which is trying to keep up a decent standard of drawing in real time. It’s a real test of just how well you can extemporise, and that, for me, is a real challenge.
But enough moaning. Ignore my insecurities. I hope you enjoyed these cartoons. :)

Well done! Yes, I really enjoyed your comic day. Great drawings. I might try this, just for myself for now.
Thank you. I recommend it – just not on a work day.
I’m smiling. Good job at recreating a day in the life. (K)
Excellent work as always Myf ! I love that you have noted your child’s desire for middle class treats, I laughed so much when my 5yr old niece told me that her favourite thing to eat was a toasted panini. I also really like the frame showing the see-sawing between fluid writing and illiterate stumbling. Your standard is brilliant!
Ah your comments are always so encouraging, thank you :)
That frame garnered some amusing anecdotes over on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BBQg7PFDThn/?taken-by=mockduck
