-Wire Interpretation of Blind Drawing-
-Understanding Comics (Notes)-
- A comic is a sequential art form
- Abstract reflections of “realistic” faces
- Cartoonic is a form of focus. We tend to focus on certain details, as opposed to eliminating details.
- Humans tend to compare images and details to themselves. An example of this is a bulls-eye. We sometimes see that shape as a resemblance to a human eye (Page 32-33)
- We extend identities into objects
- Characters are drawn in different styles to effect how the reader views them (Page 44).
What I found myself thinking while reading the first two chapters of this book was that it likes to focus mostly on the in-depth development of characters, and the human instinct to create something based on our own selves and experiences.
