Jake Parker's Presentation
First I really liked how organized Jake's lecture was. It was also really helpful in teaching about the layouts of comics. I was one of those people who found word bubbles as a problem that covered art or got in the way of what you wanted to draw, but now I see it as an indispensable to forcefully guide the reader's eye where you want it to go. I also learned about the sizing of comics which will be helpful for when I want to make page layouts. Oh and I found his talk about grouping thoughts and ideas as a great tool to make my own comics flow better. Very cool!
