No, this is not an April Fool's Day joke, it's just an early promo' for next month.

For this Art Jam I'm hosting we're going to be doing something a little different. It will be based on the popular improvisational comedy show 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?'. If you're not familiar, (where have you been for the last 20 years?) WLIIA is/was a very funny and entertaining show where 4 performers had to make up sketches as they went along with a variety of different game formats, ideas, suggestions etc. resulting in some extremely daft, strange and funny stuff all done without the aid of a script! You can read more about it  here and even watch the full UK series on  Channel 4's website There's also plenty of UK and US clips and episodes on YouTube as well.

Anyway, the idea for this jam is (well, it's not quite a jam, maybe like a marmalade with some jam mixed in?) is to translate the show's style of improvisation and comedy into comic strip format. I've narrowed down the list of games to a few I think will work best, but feel free to attempt any of the others! This jam will be for the whole of May, but I'm letting everyone know about it nice and early anyway.

Now although the points don't matter, the rules certainly do, so please read carefully.

* Watch and enjoy a few episodes of the show beforehand - it’ll really help you get a feel for what we’re doing here.
* Note me if you are interested in taking part. Any of your characters can take part in this, so say who's going to perform in the note and don't make it public - this ties in with the surprise improv' nature of the whole affair.
* You can have as many of your characters performing as you wish, but no more than 4 at any given time.
* It'll be fun having characters from different series interact so if you want to do this, that's great as long as all the characters 'agents' are OK with it!
* When you note me with your intention to join in, your characters will be given a game to improv' with. Do at least one comic on this idea and you’ll get another - as many as you think you can handle!
* If you want to get involved you must be prepared to devise at least one short comic on your given brief. For example if you get given 'Alphabet' you must draw a comic based on the description of that game. If you get ‘Props’ you’ll be given a prop to come up with gags with etc.
* No deadline extensions or copping out. The whole idea of Whose Line (apart from COMEDY) is teamwork. Everyone has to do their bit to make it fun, if they want to get involved. So remember, noooo slackin’! If you don’t think you can do it, that’s fine, just sit back and watch!
* We'll end (of course) with everyone's favourite game - HOEDOWN! Where 4 contestants have to sing on the same theme. This will be a collaborative piece with 4 characters which any of us 4 ‘agents’ can post up in a oner (ie. let everyone in the hoedown know and we'll work something out)

And the prize is, of course, to read the credits - I mean DRAW the credits in the style of my choosing!

So that’s the rules and let me know if your characters want to perform in the show, I mean comic. Thisisme:icongranitoons:sayinggoodnightGOODNIGHT!

What program do you use to draw all of your digital art?
Granitoons 2 days ago  Professional Traditional Artist
It's all drawn by hand, but I sometimes use PhotoShop for colour and effects.

Wow, never realized it until now. Looks as if it's been drawn digitally on a tablet, but, reguardless it looks great anyways. Thanks for helping me out ;)

No problem. Although I use the computer to help me, I try not to rely on it. Many thanks for the kind words. :)
