The annual event features the opportunity to create a comic book from scratch in just eight hours with the help of Nickel Plate Arts’ Featured Artists, including Stuart Sayger, Gavin Smith, and other staff members.
Hall and the other Featured Artists will be creating alongside participants all day and will be available for questions and coaching. In-person and virtual options are available.
This day-long challenge will allow participants to meet other artists and compete for prizes. However, registering for the challenge isn’t the only way to enjoy this event. The public is welcome to stop in throughout the day to watch the challenge in progress, meet and shop for artwork from these professional Featured Artists, and try your hand at some fun comic-themed art activities.
All artwork created in the challenge will be displayed in an exhibit in Ignite Studio and published in a printed comic book.
“Our title sponsor, Browning Day, is the perfect fit for Comic Book in a Day because creativity and artistry are a core part of their design process,” Nickel Plate Arts Director Ailithir McGill said. “They encourage their staff to explore a wide range of disciplines.”
Nickel Plate Arts is also excited to partner once again with the Fishers Library Ignite Studio for this event.
Once a participant has registered, they will be added to Nickel Plate Arts’ contact list and will receive updates about the details of this incredible event. A registration fee will pay for a copy of the ‘Comic Book in a Day’ compilation, which will include each participant’s work. Drawing supplies to anyone who needs them for this event will be provided.
If the registration fee for this challenge is a barrier for your participation, please contact Nickel Plate Arts for options.
2022 Champion Ella Satterfield reflected on her win from last year:
“One thing I think helped a lot was using a story that not only meant a lot to me, but related to others as well,” Satterfield said. “When you make a connection with people, your stories mean a lot more! Art-wise, I always start with thumbnails in my sketchbook before doing anything digital! That way I can see what I want to make before committing a lot of time to the finished piece.”
