This Thursday is the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States, so Rob and Jerzy will be traveling and visiting with family at the time when they'd normally be recording the LIA Cast. Fortunately there's a hefty catalog of great interviews and discussions in the LIA Cast archives, so here's a rebroadcast from December of 2015 - Finding Satisfaction with the Work, with Kasey Van Hise.
The downs of making art are numerous. It takes a lot of effort to level up, and it almost always takes more time than you expected. If your self esteem is bound in your artistic identity, there are plenty of opportunities to feel pretty rotten.
We want to end 2015 on a high note, though, so in this episode of the Lean Into Art Cast we're joined by Kasey Van Hise about finding those moments when the work is satisfying, and the unexpected places that satisfaction can be found.
Talking about visual rhythms on the Lean Into Art Cast!
How do you choose how every element in your comic interacts to achieve maximum clarity? How do you use framing, staging, and angle to create moments that show the moments’ tone, rhythm, or mood? How does this thinking change when sound, color, page layout, panel shapes, and panel interiors begin to interact with one another?
In other words, how does thinking about composition change the way you create your comics?
Comics writer Dan Mishkin sits in for Rob to chat with Jerzy about how thinking about composition as a narrative tool can improve your comics storytelling.
