Event reports from around the world give us a total 2008 estimate of over 2000 participants in 34 U.S. states and 20 countries. Congratulations, again, to all of the 24HCD host venues for a very successful event!
One thank-you, sent to Brave New World in California, sums up many of the participant emails we've received since mid-October:
Just wanted to say thank you very much again for the amazing experience that was the 24 Hour Comic Drawing Challenge. I had never participated in one before and didn't know what to expect. You guys were wonderful and made the evening and subsequent morning very enjoyable indeed. What's more, I came away from it much more confident in my artistic abilities and also more excited and inclined to draw whenever I can.
So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!
Congratulations to the 24HCD participants this year--great work! See you again next year!
