The short comic I mentioned having to script a few days ago? Well, as a visual person, I had to lay it all out first in thumbnails, and now I'm finally getting around to scripting based on those. I wish I could just go right in and draw the thing, but it's for a publication that involves editors and publishers other than myself and so approval is first required.
I actually wasn't required to script, they just need an idea of what it's about, but it's a weird essay comic that isn't quite synopsable (is that even a word?). Maybe it would be in a more skilled writer's hands, but it seems to me the best way to communicate the thing is by full script. Will probably include the thumbnails in the script as well, since the people looking at this are more typically involved in fine and contemporary art than comix.
Hope I nail this script today. Already a bit behind and have much other work to catch up on (and I really would love to write that damn newsletter).
Will attempt to script a 15-page comic today for an art-centric publication. Have a few formal experiments in mind I'd like to try, and I'd also like to squeeze in a bit of history, autobiography, and social commentary in the mix. For it to work, it's gotta look smooth and effortless, but there's a bit of figuring out to do that isn't quite so effortless.
That in addition to a couple extensive zoom meets are probably all I'll manage to muster today.
When did I become so terrible at newslettering?
