Yesterday I got the pleasure of attending a workshop lead by Frank Santoro (ColdHeatComics.blogspot.com) at the Center for Cartoon Studies.
It was a great workshop, using 3x5 notecards and quickly putting down information with just color, and not worrying about line until you have the shapes figured out. It’s a great way to just loosely layout a story and not get bogged down with all the details.
Frank also talked a lot about the angles found within full pages and how they can help lead your eye around a page. There are also circles within and they ground the images within another area the larger grid. Check out his website, or take a workshop with him. Great stuff!
