Grids and Gestures: A Comics Making Exercise
Sousanis, Nick
SANE Journal: Sequential Art Narrative in Education, v2 n1 Article 8 Sep 2015
Grids and Gestures is an exercise intended to offer participants insight into a comics maker's decision-making process for composing the entire page through the hands-on activity of making an abstract comic. It requires no prior drawing experience and serves to help reexamine what it means to draw. In addition to a description of how to proceed with the exercise, this piece also includes conceptual grounding in the form of a brief theoretical discussion of the ways comics convey meaning as well as personal notes on the development of the exercise and how it has been used.
