On Four Panel Square Comics


Recently read this interesting article on four panel (square) comics and why they are sort of exploding as a format, particularly on the web.

This is the format I want to use for my much-fantasized about (by me) comic "Everything I Needed to Know I Learned from Batman '66."

A New Writing Resource and Upcoming Online Series on Memoir

I just discovered this new online writing resource:


I've only begun to look around, but what I'm finding looks like smart, usable stuff, delivered in nicely-sized chunks for maximum usage by busy writers!

Check it out here.

And if you are interested, as I am, in memoir writing, they are doing a free, online "memoir summit" starting April 11 and running for a week.  Each day features an interview with a different memoirist.

You can find out more and sign up here.

Webcomic and Video Immersion Project

Such fascinating work people are doing in comics!

Here is a web comic and 360 video experience about a child's life in the Central African Republic.



You'll also find a link to a documentary video on the making of this work.

Sketching a Bobblehead Batman

I have a Bobblehead Batman on my desk, right near my computer screen.  I really can't do anything on my computer without looking at him.

He reminds me to be fierce, undaunted, and work for justice, no matter what "the authorities" think. 



He looks better than this!  My proportions got a little off.

Still it was fun for me to work on the shadow shapes, something I don't think about often enough, and which really do help make a sketch come alive!

Sketching a Carving of St. Francis

One thing that Jill Badonsky draws inspiration from, she told us at Sketchkon, is sculpture. 

I love a carving we have of St. Francis.   Here I took some liberties to bring him to life.


What carvings or sculptures do you have in your home or workplace or town that you might use as inspirations for drawings?
