NEXT WEEK! Tuesday, August 8 at 9:00 pm ET
Breaking the Grid: Comic Page Design that breaks out of the traditional grid-like pattern
ANDY SCHMIDT: The grid and the three-tier system are the backbone of clear visual storytelling in comics. But there are underlying rules to them–rules that almost automatically snap into place when a grid is used in the layouts. In this session, Andy analyzes some of those underlying principles to show how to apply them to art that breaks the grid system or pops out of panels. If the principles are applied properly, pages without panel borders can still flow naturally and intuitively for any reader!


If you want to make comics, write, draw, letter, and color comics, or improve as a comics creator, you’ll find like-minded friends and colleagues in our online workshops and courses. We hope to see you there!
