Years ago we did a community dodgeball comic jam. We couldn't come up with any good rules, nobody wanted to eliminate each other, but we all had a lot of fun with it. Is there any interest in doing this again?

This is what I have in mind:

Creators can come up with a brand new character, or volunteer a cast member of their comic. We pick a sport and divide the characters into roughly even teams. The teams take turns, but anybody can contribute art to either side.

For example, it is Team A's turn to be on offense. An artist wants to draw this page but their character is on Team B. They could have them blocking Team A's offense. Now it's Team B's turn, the same artist can contribute another page where the character goes on offense. Of course, it's totally fine just to riff off each other too.

Ultimately I thought we could turn it into a coloring book for DD.

I can barely keep up with my own stuff, but It'd be nice to see people revive dodgeball :D

This could be fun. I may or may not be able to participate a little depending how much art needs to be done

This might jump start my work again. Hell, I am still milking the DD awards.

And I would draw. Can't cast that many figures. 😉

Hmmm, sounds like a lot of fun actually, I can either volunteer Zoey for it or create a super adorable little girl who turns out to be an absolute terror on the court or field, because that sort of thing if done correctly, can be really funny.

If we pick a sport other than dodgeball, field hockey would be pretty fun.

Okay great! Hopefully, we'll get some momentum and more people will join.

So let's agree on a sport. The problem with Dodgeball was that artists didn't want to eliminate or be eliminated. I'm good with the Field Hockey suggestion. I'll also suggest American Football or Volleyball as possible sports.

So let's start with a character introduction! I'm excited for the return of Ingrid the Swiss Dodgebot.

Basketball would be another good option.

So hey. I wanted to start this up again then I disappeared for a year. Sorry about that.

We're in the middle of a global pandemic, (no really we are), so I know y'all ain't going nowhere.

To keep things simple it's an art jam. No teams. Let's pick a sport and a theme. Pick 2 of each, or suggest something new.

Themes:
Beach
Jetpacks
Mad Max
On the Water
Skateboards
Spaaaaace!
Underwater

Sports:
Basketball
Field Hockey
American Football
Real Futbol
Race
Battle Royal
Volleyball

My choices are:
Basketball in Spaaaace with Jetpacks!
Mad Max Field Hockey!


I'd like to start on May 1st. So that's the soft deadline to do a character intro.

A foot race or with vehicles? We could do it Mad Max style with crazy cars. But maybe have Jetpacks or even Segways, which would be easier to draw.

How about we just say “car” and people can draw what they want.

Sounds good. I will work on getting my character pin-up posted this weekend.

I kind of like beach racing too. Some kind of vehicle. Sort of like the old cartoon Wacky Races?

I'd love to see what people came up with for Mad Max basketball. 🤣

Maybe we could add a “Hot Potato” aspect to it? Throw in a Beach Ball and we have to steal it from each other as we're racing. That would be fun.
