“[A good artist is] one with imagination and the ability to tell a good story. How well a man draws cuts no ice with me, if what he’s trying to express comes out vague and choppy.” ‐ Jack Kirby
(Sherman cited in Morrow (ED.) 2004, (vol.1) p. 181).

Hi Guys,

The reasoning behind this blog is I wanted a quick and easy way to share with you interesting articles, video clips and examples that related to our in class discussions/lectures on Visual Story. Though there is a wealth of jargon, textbooks and knowledge out there, I am a believer of learning via exposure and application in your own practice, and also via examples that you yourselves can find and/or relate to. There are textbooks out there that seem to gloss over the principles that are actually important to us animators/filmmakers or sequential storytellers, or use examples that don't connect with us, as they seem outdated or no longer relevant.

So, from time to time I'll be throwing up images, blog posts, video clips, and articles for academic use/example, take from them what you will. Feel free to share comments, links or email me if you want to throw up something here to share with the others.

OK, that's the intro, go draw or something, and I'll see you all in class ;D
