Artist Spotlight... Jim Riel

Our ridiculously talented Undercoverfish Comic veteran, Jim Riel, completed the 24-hour comic challenge hosted by Worcester Art Museum (WAM) this weekend! Woo hoo! Congratulations Jim!

The 24-hour comic challenge is an international challenge to all cartoonists to complete a 24-page story (inked and lettered) in 24 hours. I did it one year and have no desire to repeat the experience. It's grueling. But I attended the WAM event this weekend. I hung out and worked for about 8 hours and saw Jim in action, churning out one fantastic page after another. I'm excited to see the whole piece, which is about the ghost of President Lincoln visiting President Obama. A few panels are pictured here.
