I believe in coincidences, but this is a bit strange:
- A few months ago someone recommended I read Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud, not for the comics part of it, but for the ideas about storytelling. I read it a few weeks ago.
- I've been watching Heroes, which is a TV show that works like a comic book story.
- For Christmas I received a Wacom Drawing Tablet, and I've started to learn how to draw.
- I've been playing the demo of Silverfall, which is a game that has hand-drawn art with black outlines around the characters that reminds me a little of comic strips.
- I found out that my Mac comes with a program called Comic Life, which lets me assemble individual drawings into a comic strip with speech bubbles.
Is the universe trying to tell me something? Maybe I should try making some comic strips…
