Quote

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
- Steve Jobs

“Wally Woods 22 panels that always work”

Someone has acquired the original photostat of Wally Woods 22 Panels. The creation and history of it seems to be almost as useful as the panels themselves. Read the letter from Larry Hama when you get the chance.

Adam Hughs drawing
There’s an interesting segment on www.comicartfans.com with a web documentary of Adam Hughs doing a commission sketch. It’s not really all that informative, but it’s still fun to watch him draw. And if you haven’t checked out his website there is definitely some gorgeous artwork.

Here’s a thought for the day…

Life is not a race to become successful. It’s not even about becoming successful. It’s about getting better every day – So that each month you look back and see what you have done – And each year you celebrate how far you have come. Until one day… you’ve done more than you thought you could, found more than you thought there was to find, and dreams became dates on a calendar instead of scribblings in some old journal. And somewhere in that journey you became who you always wished you could be. Life is a journey, not a destination. Learn to enjoy the ride.

“If panel two is very similar to panel one, you probably should be doing animation, because you’re trying to express motion. What should be happening between panel one and panel two… There should be a significant change between those two panels, so that the gutter – that white space between each panel – is filled up by the readers mind.”

–Nick Bertozzi (graphic novelist, CBLDF)
