Last month I ran an all night comics making workshop at the amazing Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis.
We knuckled down and shredded pencils and brush pens until the break of dawn. At the end, everyone had made an 8 page mini comic, and wound up with a copy of everyone elses work to take home. The above picture shows us dividing up the booty like good pirates do.
Over on the Light Grey blog, they posted a recap of our adventures and a whole bunch of photos. Head over there for more visual stimulation.
The night was super exciting and inspiring, to see so many talented people together in one room making gorgeous shoot from the hips comics and illustrations filled me with joy. Thanks to everyone for turning up and submitting to all my ridiculous requests and demands. Thanks also to Light Grey for being the greatest and most generous people and hosting the event.
Due to travel commitments and other shenanigans, I was unable to post a page last friday.

While I was in Minneapolis for the Nights and Weekends exhibition at Light Grey Art Lab, we took a few minutes to chat about making art. You can follow through here to listen in.
Talking with Campbell Whyte
Synopsis: On this week’s podcast we talk to prolific artist and all-around-great-guy Campbell Whyte. Campbell’s massive 8-Bit Dreams series is on display in this month’s Nights & Weekends exhibit, and he traveled all the way from Australia to join us for the opening and to lead All-Night with Campbell Whyte, an all-night comic workshop. Campbell is no stranger to incredible, large-scale projects and we talk to him about where his ideas come from, how he manages to stays motivated and get so much accomplished, and much much more.
I’m pretty excited to be able to start showing the 2nd chapter of my ongoing series Home Time. With the shift to chapter two, we also shift in to full colour. You can see the full size image over here.
New pages will be posted every Monday and Friday.
We made comics all night long, we were comics making machines of glory and star stuff.
I’d like to thank everyone who came along and took part in this industrious endeavour.
