24 Hour Comic, Scary Pack of Monkeys

This is my 24 hour comic. It is based on a recurring dream. I know it does not quite make sense in places and sometimes it is really hard to follow. Sorry that it does not have a front or back cover. I'd also like to mention that I have never before attempted to create a comic, so please forgive me for all the mistakes and so forth.
Basically, I drew a page an hour and the hands are all my hands drawn from life (in the case of my left hand) or from a photo. I did use some reference pictures fr the tall ship and the scary alien monkeys, but mostly it is all directly from my head. :)

24 Hour Comic

On Saturday, 3rd of March 2012, a group of us from Uni gathered in the Plymouth Uni Library at 10am in order to produce a 24 page comic each in 24 hours. This was an event outside of our course for which we willingly pushed and tortured ourselves to create more work than we thought possible in such a small amount of time. I wanted to share some of the captured moments from that day and night in the library and to remind myself of the lovely company and the hard work.  Please Click on the images if you wish to see them larger.

Cards and Things

I wanted to share some of the later cards I have been making, there are only three of them along with some made by others on my course. 
Thanks to Merle for taking the photos.

For Meggie on her birthday, a freehand cut-out which was lots of fun. 
I couldn't let Merle and Benj have all the fun with cut-outs.

For Valentines, Rachel Rawlings (left), Merle Hunt (right), and me (centre) each made a card for Nicola Carter, our amazing friend. I think the cards look lovely together.
