Save the Date! Spread the Word! Comics comics comics!
We’ve had our early meet-ups, and as many of who can meet each other have met one another. Now we’re into the details – shopping lists, the last round-ups of volunteers (anyone want to dress up in a Tyvek suit? I still need one more body…), trying to get the pieces in place to keep this event moving as smoothly as possible.
If you haven’t read the previous post, here’s the short form: we’re going to create a mural-sized comic, 90″ tall (that’s 7’6″) and roughly 60′ long between the hours of 5pm and midnight (give or take). We’ll be posting images and maybe even video to this blog throughout the evening, so if you can’t make the event, you can still see us trying to wrangle chaos into multicolored narrative, panel by panel.
We’ve got three colorists, six illustrators, and one writer in place. I know, you’re saying that doesn’t add up to 25, and I can’t dispute your math. While they’re going to be the primary storytellers, we’ve got four people doing documentation, a choreographer and five volunteers whose painted silhouettes will create the primary canvas for the illustrators – who will in turn be influenced by the colorists – and back again. Not to mention the team of wranglers who are going to help make all of this work proceed apace.
It’s going to be fast, it’s going to take a loose hand, and we might work up a bit of a sweat.
Hope to see you there (or here, in the ether).
