Comics as CSS?
While working on layouts for the graphic novel, I’m trying out something a little different. I sketch out individual panels in sequence without any concern for how they’ll fall on the page. Instead, I’m first making sure the pacing and order is right—adding and subtracting moments as necessary—and then seeing how they tumble onto the page and whether adjustments have to be made after the fact.
So, basically I’m working out pacing like it was plain HTML, then the comics page is like a style sheet applied to that content. Comics = CSS!
This makes me happy.
Because I am a big fat dork.
