Generate 24: Overview

Generate happened!! Generate is a challenge where students attempt to do 24 comic pages in 24 hours. No easy task to say the least. At SCAD: Atlanta our SEQA department did a fantastic job making Generate an interesting and engaging experience. We had prizes, special guests, even food! Our special guests walked around couching students on their pages and whatever help they may need, including some encouraging tweets!

In case you missed it, here are some highlights:

(Special guests: Marvel's Mike Marts and Katie Kubert dropping some knowledge.)

(Green Lantern writer Van Jensen checking out previous student spotlight Em Barnard's work!)

(Artist Meghan Hetrick sharing her portfolio with the students.)

(Virtual Tour of IDW's home base via iPAD)

(Students with Twitter received some encouraging words in the later hours from our special guest from Robot 6, Tim O'Shea) 

Congratulations to those who finished the challenge!! 24 pages in 24 hours is no easy feat but with a good work ethic and some major endurance skills, the following students completely the challenge!
