This lovely item was created by Mike Duckett at one of the meetings, and until I figure out how the ruddy hell to give him posting capabilities, I'll be representing his efforts.
Mike says: "Drawn at the end of the Paper Jams session, ideas for a comic I hope to do in 2010 about Thomas Spence"

This one's from the last meeting, taking off from the words, you guessed it, "eyebrows" and "clown". We had a few combinations to choose from this time and I had initially started work on a strip themed "doctor" and "parody", but it was shit, so I started this one. A heartwarming story, I'm sure you'll agree.
Technically that makes this a 18 minute comic or something. Do I get extra points for that?
A bit of a break from the 24 minute comics here, this is the result of learning about Sugar Gliders earlier in the week and reading a couple of graphic novels by the wonderful Darwyn Cooke. For those of you keeping score, the comics in question were The Spirit and Parker: The Hunter, which is possibly the most satisfying comics adaptations from a novel I've read. You really should invest.
So understandably, a marsupial themed, Darwyn Cooke inspired superhero appeared in my sketchbook during that comics night.

Dan Gilmore did the cover for the first Paper Jam Comics anthology. He is also obscenely talented. Here's a small manifestation of that talent in a controlled 24 minute burst.
The words? "Doctor" and "Parody".
Occasionally, there's a variation on the rules, instead of picking two random words or phrases, numerous pairs are selected to create the "best" possible stimulus. Sometimes, participants choose to incorporate four rather than two random words. Frequently, people abandon sequentiality , in favour of the single image and caption format, and not that often, folks turn up late and start drawing. This is the eighteen-and-a-half-minute-multiple-word-gag-cartoon variation.
Doctor Parody Clown Eyebrows were the words. Oscillating Brow was the artist.

This second posting from me is the last 24 minute comic I did.
As you can see from comparing them, I haven't improved much! FACT: they both also include the word "douche" - which is not a word I use in general conversation. Spooky.
The words/phrases this time were, as you can probably guess, "I will piss in your dishwasher" and "genie". Why the former was suggested, I don't know. I worry about these people.
To start my postings I thought I'd put up my first attempt at a 24 minute comic which was done at my first Paper Jam meeting early this year. The words that came out of the hat were "Jesus" and "carnage" - so I can be forgiven for most of what's to come.
It's not the best thing I've ever done (and certainly not the worst), but it demonstrated quite clearly how I meant to go on - profane and unnecessarily offensive.

Here's an old one from me, it takes place before, during and after 24 minute comics sesh. One for fans of the fourth dimension there.
The random phrase generator gave us "Sponge" and "ASBO" this time round...
