Diary Comic: Getting a Car
Every week we have to do a diary comic for our drawing teacher, Steve Bissette. The main point is just to do a page of comics with no strings attached. Experimentation and speed. Early on Steve gave us a photocopied grid of six panels drawn sloppily in thick marker so we wouldn’t worry too much about layout. Personally, I slave over my layout compositions so this has been a real boon. The comic above was drawn inside one of those grid copies, and you will most likely see more on this blog in the future. Two hours from idea to final product. As the projects start to get longer and more complex, that’s become my favorite part of doing diary comics.
