9.11 comic

Click image to enlarge
I attend a comics group that meets in a cafe every Monday. Yesterday was 9/11 and a quick assignment was given: to draw a 9/11 comic in 30 minutes...and here is what I did. No time to think too much, no time to erase. I ended up drawing what my experience was that day, and surprised it was more serious in tone than many others.

I remember that day too (who doesn't), although I was halfway around the globe. It was with open-mouth shock and disbelief as I stepped out of the shower at 10+ in the evening and saw the twin towers burning on the TV news. It's all the more shocking since I just returned from NYC less than 1 week ago. Your comic deftly shows how a perfectly normal day turns into one of disproportionate horror.

I remember that day vividly as well. I lived in DC at the time and you could see the pentagon from my house. I was home and I remember feeling the vibration of the plane when it hit the pentagon. It was the oddest feeling. LIke a sonic boom or a mini earthquake. Horrible.
Thanks for posting about this day.

I remember my brother sending me a text message at 2 or 3am telling me about it. That's what time it was over here in oz.. they had it on the tv as it was happening. Very surreal... coupled by the fact that I was half asleep. It took me a while for my brain to switch on and work out that it really was real.
Thanks for sharing. :)

I can't even imagine what it was like to be in NYC that horrible day. Your comic is really touching and beautfuly made...thank you so much for sharing it with us.
And thanks for you comments on all the "chicky fun" on my blog...Did I tell you I have an 8 year old chickenboy? :-) He even has his ID I downloaded from your old site...hehe.
