Wrap up after the event in Madeira Island (Portugal)

Officially, we just finished our 24 HOUR COMICS DAY in Madeira Island @ 10:00 AM.

After gathering all the comics drawn and statistical information we concluded the following:
- This year we had 43 participants, 20 male, 23 female
- Of these 43, only 6 created a 24-page comic in 24 hours
- All contestants created 318 pages during these 24 hours, some of them with outstanding quality - and using several sizes and techniques: from watercolors to pencils and india ink. Colored comics, Grayscale, Black and White, Collage - with several themes, from romance to philosophy.

Everyone enjoyed the event, and here is a photo of the "survivors" that were present at 10:00 AM today, when we wrapped up the event. Such a wonderful crowd!

We hope to do an exhibition later this year, showcasing all the artwork created during this event!

Thank you for such a wonderful experience! Lots of hugs to all of you from Madeira Island!
