possibilities, new year

December 19, 2009

 

.

This is a piece on the possible future of comics.

In the New Year there is likely to be a lot more consideration of the kind of medium that is looked at in the above sequence (click on the image…), and I’d like to think that the ideas will spread into other areas of work, as well.

Architecture has always involved non-sequential narratives and storytelling. We have our own ways, but we have a lot to learn. There’s a lot of learning documented here and if you are dropping by, I hope you find something good to read (I’ll try and update some of the blogroll, and you can follow up on the posts by clicking on the images).

Thank you to everyone who has helped me this year. You know who you are.

Here’s to learning and being willing to change. Here’s to the unknown future. Here’s to making new stuff and new stories. I’m taking a break from this blog-making (it is quite intense) over Christmas and I’ll be back in the second week of January. Happy New Year. See you soon.

Watch and listen to what Frank Miller, Bill Sienckiewicz and others have to say. The video (click on the image to see it) is quite long, but it’s worth seeing all the way through.

100 days, 100 comics – tom humberstone

December 17, 2009

Tom Humberstone is making a page of comics a day, every day for a hundred days. This is publishing’s loss and drawing’s gain as he rests and recoups from the Solipsistic Pop assembly and launch* and gets back to basics. Here’s one of today’s (strangely timeless) pages (above) and a note from page 10 from Tom himself (with page 10, itself below):

Barely a drop in the ocean but still, I’m glad I’ve stuck with this. I think I’m starting to loosen up and have been shocked at how much fun this exercise is. The fact it’s every day takes the pressure off oddly. I go into each comic expecting the worst and have a decent excuse if it turns out badly – but have (most of the time) been pleasantly surprised.

Good Luck and keep going, Tom. 🙂 This is brilliant.
