Week 4: Research Project: Cartoon/Comics

2009.11.30

This assignment was inspired by a drawing by Jamie Smith, a copy of which currently graces my home.  It led me to reevaluate the use of linear perspective in terms of cartoons and comics.   Hours of research has led me to believe that there are few art genres beyond cartoonists and comic artists who understand the magic, effectiveness and drama of linear perspective.
