Comics Drawing Storytelling

With Drawing as shape and form


In talking with Michael Fiffe for an interview I couldn’t quite explain what I was going for in my drawing. There’s a process to drawing, choosing a line length size and weight, that’s actual visual thinking. That process from Cezanne on has been part of painting, but because comics drawing is about creating icons that process is hidden. Drawing are done cleanly and the artist doesn’t “think”. The artist is creating a world so you shouldn’t actually see any thought. Time and time again I want to leave the thought in, but then the thought takes you out of the narrative and can comics have that kind of drawing?
