Spawns of Insomnia (2002)

We've been documenting local cartoonists for quite a while. Here are a few clips from Spawns of Insomnia produced by Ron Austin back in 2002. The Spawns event was sponsored by Cartoonists Northwest, and was a fairly early version of the popular 24-Hour Comics challenge made famous by Scott McCloud in the 1990s.

These clips feature artists Roberta Gregory, Mark Monlux, Donna Barr, Larry Lewis, Phil Foglio, John Lustig, Dan McConnell, and many others. Artists stayed up for 24 hours straight to write and draw a full-page comic. The video was a fun production produced back in the earlier days of digital video (only 12 years ago -but it seems like many technological decades have passed). The comic event took place June 2002 on Capitol Hill in Seattle.
