For a while now, I’ve been working on my not-so-secret project: a big nonfiction comic about visual communication across disciplines.


This blog will continue to be pretty quiet while I toil away at the book, but bits and pieces have been showing up in my visual lecture as well. If you manage to catch me on the road anytime in the next year or two, you’re bound to see evidence of this particul...

“Art, as I see it, is any human activity which doesn’t grow out of either of our species’ two basic instincts: survival and reproduction.”
Scott McCloud, Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art

“...when you look at a photo or realistic drawing of a face, you see it as the face of another . But when you enter the world of the cartoon , you see yourself.”
Scott McCloud, Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art

“I may have drawn an axe being raised in this example, but I'm not the one who let it drop or decided how hard the blow, or who screamed, or why. That, dear reader, was your special crime. Each of you was committing it in your own style.”
Scott McCloud, Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art
