I’m most interested in learning about the story aspect of comics.
More specifically a couple of things I came up with:
What have/are people doing to tell stories well?
-from panel to panel, page to page, cover to cover, etc.
-with style of art and style of page layout
-some of the more creative /unconventional (yet still effective) methods
I haven’t been exposed to many comics, so I feel like there’s a bunch of story devices going on in the panel itself to a more global scale of the entire comic book itself being used that I’m not aware of… I would like to become more aware of what’s going on with this story thing, so that I can use these concepts and perhaps even make innovations on my own comics.
I actually VERY excited for this class. I’m planning on doing a 10 page comic for my Illustration BFA project next year, and I’d like to get as much development and application from this class into my BFA project as possible.
