In the charitable spirit of Christmas, we’ve decided to get involved with a little festive giveaway of our own…
To win, all we ask is that you send us a Six Minute Comic; that is, a four panel comic which you’ve drawn from start to finish in six minutes. Entries close at 9pm on Boxing Day, after which we’ll choose our favourite and reveal the winning entry on 27th December. The winner will receive copies of Dirty Rotten Comics 4, 5 & 6, and have their work featured on this very site.
Six Minute Comics is a drawing exercise that we’ve lauded on this site many times in the past, and is an activity that can be carried out on your own or as part of a group. Indeed, it may offer the perfect post-Christmas-dinner family activity!
Before getting started, make sure you take a look at our ‘Six Minute Method‘ article, which also features some ideas for expanding the game.
Finished competition entries can either be emailed to us (email@example.com), or Tweeted over (@dirtyrottencomx). International (non-UK) entries are very welcome, although please note you won’t be eligible for the prize draw.
Best of luck, and we wish you a very merry Christmas!
