24 Hour Comics Drawing Day 2013: The Biggest Yet

Our Books Team 01

In addition to celebrating 5 years of ‘24 Hour Comics‘ with our ‘Strip All Night‘ exhibition at Java Cafe,
Our Books and friends dived into year six on Saturday the 28th.

We produced in excess of sixty pages, and had our biggest turnout yet of both professionals and amateurs.
We would like to thank our ‘artist guides’ Sao Sreymao and Moeu ‘Vuth’ Diyadaravuth for assisting the Our Books team in orienting participants and encouraging newcomers.

Many elected to do the ‘Cambodian Variation’ of ‘One Hour / One Comic’ but stuck around for a little more.

Due to Cambodia’s Pchum Ben holiday our event was held one week early. To encourage other participants during this global event, Our Books will be Facebooking and Twittering art and photos this coming Saturday October 05.

Stay tuned for selections from 2013’s offerings on Java Cafe‘s walls, and also at Rik Reay gallery / noodle shop!

For now, here are some pictures and pages to pique your interest.
