I’ve been absolutely up to my neck in the Draw The Line project (comic artists drawing positive political actions that anyone can take), but when Hourly Comic Day rolled around, I couldn’t bear the thought of not taking part.
I’ve participated for the past three years, and the concept chimes very well with my tendency towards diary-based comics. This year though, I’d be in Leeds with work, for an all-day meeting that would neither allow for the luxury of regular drawings and uploads, nor provide very interesting or varied content. So I cheated slightly, and completed my hourlies on the Saturday beforehand.
As with every year, it was slightly stressful and time-consuming, and I ended up feeling a bit unhappy about sharing rough work. But also as with every year, I believe that the narrative supersedes the quality of the drawing in the end.
Anyway, awkward preamble over, here’s my Hourly Comic Day. Click any of the images to see them at a larger size.
If I have time, I hope to do my usual round-up post of other people’s too, but it might not be as quick off the mark as it usually is.

Wonderful as usual, but more… thoughtfull? I dont know the right word I think. I’m lucky you took part at the #hourlycomicday, we are probably the only ones, I didn’t find much results this year. Mostly on tumblr. Even if I had a normal workingday I drew every hour, but mine isn’t ready yet. Some colou is lacking. But I hoe it will come soon.
I love this so much it’s made my whole day feel 100% better! If I ever get to live another life I want to draw comic strips, though I’d never do ones as good as yours. I’m certain you have no idea how terrific this is. I try to write (and draw) posts that reflect how I feel but never manage anything as honest and courageous and revealing as this. Or as delightful. Or as funny. Good luck in Leeds by the way….. hope it all goes/went well. (Just down the road from me).
