I was doing some random Google video searches for comic books and ran across this fascinating series from MIT interviewing comic book artist Nick Bertozzi through the process of creating a page and a comic book.
I really liked this quote. I’ve heard it many times, but never put quite so succinctly.
“If panel two is very similar to panel one, you probably should be doing animation, because you’re trying to express motion. What should be happening between panel one and panel two…
There should be a significant change between those two panels, so that the gutter – that white space between each panel – is filled up by the readers mind.” –Nick Bertozzi
