grumbling when talking to online User Experience people and they find out that I draw comics, their face lights up and they say you know there’s a great book. And their always amazed when I say
“Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud”, and when i say “I’m a little jaded because I got all the theory he talks about in Art School so I never saw what the big deal was” they get confused what is interesting after talking to them they love the book but I’m never sure how they use the book.
But now I’m looking at what User Experience is and how you develop a comic/learning experience for that and the challenge is how do you step back and integrate development techniques from software into comics, more or less I’m pondering why someone won’t write the manual for what I want to do and why do I have to figure it out myself.
