Text-Image Interdependence? Drawriting? What’s Funny About That?

Being funny is serious business.  Doing it well requires the right ingredients and process.  Text-image interdependence is one of the keys to a good comic strip. Drawriting is the method for producing a great comic strip.

Legendary comic strip artist Michael Jantze, creator of The Norm comic strip, shares decades of experience in the most recent Taught By A Pro lesson. In Drawriting A Comic Strip, he walks through the drawritng process and describes the fundamentals of comic strip drawriting.  Michael also describes creating the characters’ “environment” which allows you to build the tension necessary for funny comic strips.
