Hourly Comic Day 2012 [Feb. 2nd, 2012|04:47 pm]
Okay, I set myself the challenge to watercolor my hourlies this year. I'm fast at watercolors, but apparently not THAT fast. Anyway, I made it all the way to 6pm before I started falling behind, and ended up coloring the last few hours today (CHEATING! Mon DIEU!)

But anyway, here are my technicolor Hourly Comics for 2012:

ps: I'm still not sure whether I won or not. No word yet.

Kitties. So lovable. So stand-offish.

These look so, so good Lucy. Watercoloring hourlies was ambitious, to say the least, and you did such an excellent job.

Surely you are going to win. Last I voted, you had twice as many votes as anyone else and besides your entry was massively more awesome.

I love how the cat has taken on the internal critical voice... my cats are usually giving me non-critical messages like "take more naps" and "lie on the couch more while petting me".

This is why I don't have a cat. I don't want that cat judging me when I look at pictures of Benedict Cumberbatch.

These are gorgeous - probably my favourite hourly comics so far! Also, I hope you won the shoe contest!

I'm sure you won! Last I voted you were dominating it. You are very good at watercolours, and I am jealous.

First time commenting here... but I have been enjoying your work on this site since I read "French Milk" about a year ago. I love your style, your colors, your humor.

Anyway, nice set of hourly comics. "Reunited At Last" is a particularly fun panel.

Gooooorgeous! Last panel especially! I also want to know your secret for hanging a million pictures in a rental situation, presumably a plaster walls situation. >:I

Thank you, thank you, thank you...for singing The Smiths in the shower and drinking Kraken.

*Try a Krak'n'Coke, it tastes like pumpkin pie.

Hourly Comic

This is one of the most beautiful hourly comics that I've EVER seen. EVER. And Kraken is soooo good (The octopus lable is amazing too) I'm glad you took the extra time to watercolour these. I don't think it's cheating when the result is so lovely!

Best of luck with the competition

There ain't no such thing as cheatin'! I finished my last two drawings today because I am PRO LIFE AWESOME STYLES. It's become a tradition. Mind you, I just go straight up pen, I don't have the sweet watercolour skills like you do. This is mad good, keep it up!

These hourly comics are beautiful. I love to see how people live their everyday lives. People are more alike than we think.

Let us know if you won, but I'm sure you did. I voted!

p.s. I feel ya on the stairs. 4 flights every day are brutal.

Oh man, this is a really gorgeous hourly comic! I love the way you do watercolors (I'm assuming its watercolor I am terrible at recognizing paint styles)

Also were you singing the Slow Moving Millie version of "Please Please Please", because if so then that makes me super excited!

I really hope you win the shoe ad contest, you deserve it!

(14 euro is way too much for a radler that is ridiculous)

I know those two! Andrew/Taylor...I met them at a mutual friend Bridget's 007 James Bond party. Andrew was wearing a wetsuit, needless to say he is hilarious, also Taylor was super sweet.

Just thought I'd mention how random it was to be reading your comic and then have it dawn on me that I knew them :) Nice work and congrats on the win!

Haha! That's hilarious! I loved those photos of Andrew in his 007 costume. Wetsuit on the bottom, tux on the top. Brillz.
