Hourly Comic Day 2021

I finally made it through an Hourly Comic Day! I posted throughout the day on Twitter and decided to post the completed series here today. We finished the James Baldwin documentary I am not Your Negro around 10pm after multiple pauses to answer questions from the younguns and that was it for drawing for me.

I tried to keep things simple & finishable so my parameters were:

  • no pencils, just inks & undos
  • hand lettering only (no messing with text layers in Procreate)
  • keep it messy
  • trace stock images if needed.

Some of my panels are absolute crap but it’s amazing how some halftones can give a little polish (I added the tones while watching the doc).

Have you participated in Hourly Comic Day? Do you like journal comics? Let me know in the comments.

Hi, I’m Arp! I make comics and write about life as an Indian-American with late-diagnosis ADHD. I’m a self-taught and self-employed creator so I write a lot about art, learning, and entrepreneurial stuff that I’ve picked up along the way.

My stories are kinda weird, because that’s just how I am. My formative influences are Indian mythology, Batman, Tintin, 70s Bollywood, Ray Harryhausen, and Monty Python. There’s no way anything normal could come out of that, right?
