Jake Parker, Leading the Eye

Something that I really caught onto when Jake was going over Comics was that of design with your word bubbles.  I never would have even thought that they were part of the design.  I figure that you should jsut try to cram them in there wherever it doesn't cover up your art.

His big example of Mignola and the way his word balloons lead the eye not only from panel to panel but sometimes across the page and through a piece of art as well.  The seemless use was enlightening to me.

Alot of other things were already covered by others such as simplicity in panels and shape of panels.  Those things seemed to really coincide with what I have been reading in making comics as well.

Overall a great presentation.
