Wednesday Bonus!!!

You know that diagrammatic comics example I drew for Neil's article the other day? It was only part of the story. I designed a whole big thing around it but it was too much for just one example in an article of several. Since today's comic is basically talking heads I thought I'd show you the thumbnail I drew for the full example comic. You know, to make up...

I swear, I drew this comic before I knew that Neil Cohn's newest Comixpedia article would be posted today as well. The article deals with embedding visual narrative within graphic devices such as speech and thought balloons, so this cartoon ends up being strangely appropriate.
Oh, I did the illos for the article too.

While you're at over Comixpedia check out Derik Badman's newest piece, explicating a page from Jaime Hernandez (Love and Rockets). It's a good piece but - given that Comixpedia is mainly a webcomics site - it begs the question: where is webcomics' Jaime Hernandez?

Almost Comics...


If anybody cares, here's full disclosure:
That second panel was inferred and extrapolated from the posters comment, but I think it communicates his drift okay. He wasn't making any kind of judgement call, either (i.e. multimedia = not comics = BAD!) just arguing "purity" of form. I think the multimedia distinction is really a gray area in comics (a gray area I love to see played with) and not necessarily as absolute as any comics/not comics discussion. Any distinctions at these levels are splitting hairs anyway, and only important for categorical or formal concerns (for most people that reads "not important at all")

What? Nobody cares?
Thought so...
