Description

The ways of expressing a story in art are many and varied. The use of perspective, creative page layout, continuous action flowing from one panel to the next, a collage design, the use of shadow and light, and intersecting panels are all techniques for telling a story. The avenues of expression are as varied as the artists and cartoonists who express them. Creating Comic Art takes you on a journey to explore those approaches to artistic expression through the eyes of 42 artists.
