First up a big thanks to the organisers and a big thanks to everyone who contributed. Like last year here are my comments, I hope you find them useful.

---
Bravo to all contestants. I'm reminded of what they say about Improvised Theatre "A brilliant mind in panic". I'm impressed at the range of visual styles on display and the creative approach to story telling. I would like to see more work done on the story aspects, this is often the weakest area of the pieces. I'm providing crits that I hope will be useful, they are but small snapshots of my opinion of how they can be improved. First and foremost you all rock. Rock like awesome rocking things.


Wredwrat & Amei - Home is Where She is.
- very impressive effort for 24 hours. Did get a bit confused about who was the woman shot and burned, I thought it was Ada (as she seemed to have a strange hair change earlier), but it didn't fit with my reality for her to look so smooth skinned at the end if it was her - set fire to I'd expect some burn scars on her arms and a bit on her face at least. That said very nice, expressive story that sets a high bar for those who follow.

Sarah Milne - Pirate, Pirate, Ninja - great illustration style, well suited for the silliness. For an unscripted entry it pulls it off well, maniacally charging forward and making sense without breaking the rules it established and is quite entertaining - good marks for hyucks. It is a bit andthenandthenandthen, however and looses marks on story.

Zhe Xiang - Dramatic entrance. Great visual style. The panel after the alien-like beasty (mouth inside a mouth) confused me, is that a monster bottom? Nice story, builds up a lot of expectation with the awesome chick fighting her way through the hoards... what were the other things she fought? I want to know what the other parallels were. Zombie armies for students - tick, what about the rest? I do like the way the fly provides a beginning and end and the simple pages towards the end work well. Nice story.

Michael Connolly - Hands of Destiny. The t-shirts are a cool idea, I was admiring the textures in the cover page. Some of the panel compositions are confusing and the lettering is difficult, but you can follow the story. I like the twist, but for me I could see the coming too far ahead (indeed I wasn't sure if it happened on page 12 initially). I think better balloon placement would really help and better choice of lettering so it doesn't jump around as much - possibly each voice having the one style of lettering. Good effort.

Ive Sorocuk - The Diggables. Fun and interesting start. My sense of space got a bit baffled. While on the aeroplane it felt like they were standing around a lounge room and it interrupted the flow of the story. The story floundered in the middle, but the ending was cool :)

Annie Kao - 24 Hour Comic. A fun romp for you cool folks that do this madness, especially those who do it again and again. From an outsider perspective I don't get the same connection, but a cute concept. Enjoy your jelly babies.

Jules Faber - heheh, you really are great at making those lines expressive - the loose style suits you. Given you had to work in the middle it's very impressive. Did get more than a little rocky, but I'd love to see you do more with these guys. Well done.

Wen Huang - Bluberry Cloud. The watercolour certainly gives it a great lift. It was jumpy and hard to follow in places it was delightfully surreal, in other places it felt a bit 'in-jokey', the story not made for the outside eye. But it had a lovely playful quality and some really nice unexpected ways of working things in.

Gary Lau - a lovely little story, great expressiveness and I love the flicking between the imagined and the real world. Poor little robot without an internal censor. I would have liked to have seen more variation in the line weight as that did make things confusing at times and given the strong beginning and middle I was disappointed by the ending - the equivalent of "and it was all a dream". An ending you have to be very careful of or it's just a way of wimping your way out of it.

Jacen - Marty the Fly. Somebody watched way too much Warner Brothers as a kid. Heh heheh. Very nicely done indeed. I love the silhouettes in the fight scene and all the little details (like searching for a glove when returning). Story, art, easy to read words, clear panel composition. Poor Marty :(

Edward J Grug III - The bug etc etc. Very impressive, I love the creative use of the form. Cute and silly and creative. If you don't win a prize you need some sort of honourable mention.

Travers Cleeman - Photos over pencilled. I liked the stilted dialogue to start with it had promise with the two guys awkwardly connecting, but then the dialogue really seemed to slide all over the place and not in a good way (especially for the black astronaut whose voice was the most inconsistent and it came across as a bit derogatory - at least she didn't say "yes massa"). It's great to see more writers getting involved, but I would have liked to see stronger characters and story.

Jen Breach and Trev Wood - The Genre Machine. Heheh, clever way of giving yourself room to move in the craziness that is the 24 challenge. I've been meaning to try out comiclife, now I know not to bother. It looks like a pain in the arse. I like the lassy completion of the circle - it's a great trick to bring things to a satisfying close. Nicely done.

Melon - 'a cup of duck'. Love the smoke swirls on the cover page. Love the talking bustle. Some great concepts here especially with the licenses, but more than a little jumpy and looses points on story.

Practice Cactus - Children of the Night - Love the characters, the action scenes and the panel compositions. Rockin' hard story line. The only bit that I don't like is the fact that she conveniently grabs a hat that blows her guts out. It's too convenient with no sufficient justification (although a cool concept, just not a satisfying set up for it) Love the closing page. Well done.

Tanya Nicholls - 24hrc 07. A promising beginning, nice setting of the scene through images and language. I love the way they think they are rescuing the pilot, a nice touch. The ending is disappointing and it is important to close strongly. While it was a strong end image it felt like a bit of a cop out.

Tim Pearson - The Chase. Great use of expressions and minimal dialogue, all the stronger for it. I loved the twist at the end, I wasn't expecting that at all. Very nicely done (although quite sad :(

Thomas Carter - Affairs of a Dark Concern. I think this story is a lot stronger than last years, it builds on it nicely too and gives the world a little bit more depth (if deluge as well). Like many of the comics produced in a short amount of time it's a bit jumpy, but not so jumpy as to throw me out of the text.

Ant - Duffy, Bongo and the Fly. Some cute noir bits and some promising pastiche. Story not so strong I would have liked to see you do more with it. I particularly liked the stoppering (though so sad) and some of the references.

Erin McGregor - 9th Floor. Strong opening, great visual style and pert dialogue. full story - I would have liked a little exposition as to who the mouse was if she wasn't a princess and the continuity stuff on the last two pages (different clothes) bugged me. But those are little niggles. Nicely done.

Alastair Sew Hoy - Flower Power. Great use of colour and fantastic cohesive weirdness. My only disappointment was the "it was all a dream" ending - it worked ok, but having it as yet another dream rather than a transformative event was a bit of a let down.

Yay! I'm really pleased at the winners list. Congratulations guys :D (Pirate Pirate Ninja is my fav)

This has been a great experience for me as a first timer, and I hope to be even better next time round. Thanks for the great responses too. The panel after the double-mouthy scene is the creature's eye, and I wasn't too happy with how it turned out either, but I felt like I was taking too much time, so I overlooked it :P

The other parralels?

Heh-heh.

I'll leave that to your imagination :)

That's awesome! Thanks fer the door prize you guys - I can't believe I managed to pull it together so late in the game, but it has been truly liberating. Having Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (to a more than average degree, but not one that has me turning locks five times in a row) I've always been kinda stilted by my need to make all my ink so clean and solid. Racing the clock like this I realised I can make some pretty good looking work from loose - almost dirty - artwork.

I know I never stood a chance at winning the major prize (how could anyone against the perilous might of Wredwrat and Amei's awesomeness?) but I still feel I've walked away with a huge win for my development as an artist. Without the bounds of the 24hr I might not have discovered that and, as a professional artist, it can only add volumes to my career.

I may have won a killer prize for the 30 pages (thanks to all involved in the voting for that - I'm wrapt!) but my abilities and my career have walked away with the Oscar (in my mind). So thanks to everyone for making me want to shoot so high. You all contributed to this 'giant leap' for Julesworld. (Sorry though, no cheques in the mail).

Thanks heaps everyone for so much great work and so much fun!

Woo!
I'm happy with the results.
There was so much good work done, there should be more prizes.
As a first timer I learned a lot and I'm happy that at least someone voted for me (other than me). :D

I'd be interested to hear azahru's opinion on my work/tea fueled madness.
