In the latest installment of Boulder and Fleet: Adventurers for Hire it looks like Iron Master Eating Chef Tournament training is on hold while we deal with some unstable cliff faces!

Leveling up your comic's layouts

I had a terrific time talking with +Dan Mishkin about visual rhythms, layout, and composition in comics storytelling. This two-hour video is almost a class on comics composition–we break out a bunch of examples of well-executed pages and highlight what makes them work so well.

The video version would probably be the best way to enjoy this one, but you can also get the audio version here: http://ift.tt/1L9oxal

Talking about visual rhythms on the Lean Into Art Cast!

How do you choose how every element in your comic interacts to achieve maximum clarity? How do you use framing, staging, and angle to create moments that show the moments’ tone, rhythm, or mood? How does this thinking change when sound, color, page layout, panel shapes, and panel interiors begin to interact with one another? 
In other words, how does thinking about composition change the way you create your comics?
Comics writer +Dan Mishkin  sits in for Rob to chat with Jerzy about how thinking about composition as a narrative tool can improve your comics storytelling.
