  1. I’d like to participate in this again as well, I intend in nailing all 30 this time too!!

    I’m going to join again.

  3. OK… ready to get my daily art exercise regime going, doctor.

  4. Well, as if life isn’t already challenging enough – here’s another for you. This is the first time I’ve signed up for the 30-character chalenge, but I have written a couple of novels through NaNoBlogMo (National Novel Writing Month – but on a blog.)

    So the idea here is to simply combine these two – as cartoonists are story-tellers, after all.

    And I already had this nice Blogger blog set up.

    So google NaNoWriMo and NaNoBlogMo if you want to double your fun!?!

  5. I can’t believe I thought the challenge started today!!!!! I was psyching myself up to regain some art production frequency. Good to know there’s time, but its also good to have it in mind, and start warming up to it. These drawing muscles of mine need practice.

    I got one question. Can I have characters that I’ve created about 3 years ago too? Reply when you can and thanks for letting me in on this contest.

      The challenge is to create 30 Brand New Characters. But the only one judging what’s fair or what isn’t is you. So if you think it’s okay to revamp old characters or character ideas for this challenge, then go right ahead.
