I've been swooning over comic books (again) recently. After a few catastrophic attempts jumping into the deep end I decided that my skills as a sequential storyteller were laughable at best. So, I'm scheduling in some weekly practice, with an excercise I am dubbing 'One Page Weeklies' (OPW)
The idea is to practice comics, and stop myself from being an idiot when I say things like "oh yeah, I LUUV comics.....what was that?....uh, no...I have never actually done one".
Every week on Monday I will be posting a single page of comic...trying to keep the following in mind.
1. Attain a level of sequential storytelling competency
2. Experiment with the medium
3. Improve poor grammar
4. Develop a skill set to apply to larger comic projects
5. Have some of that 'fun' you've been hearing about
I'm interested to see what kind of storytelling I can pull off in just one page...Also, these will help regulate the posting on here.
So here is the first installment of what will be growing weekly!!
