Notes from “Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art”

-Comics use space and layout to show time and direction

-Comics is a general term for the medium

-William Hogarth and Rudolphe Topffer

-Sequential art

-Icons used to represent images or ideas

-Simplify the character to help the viewer relate to the character. Only main objects that are significant get detail.

-Are minds can recognize very simple shapes as very complex images. We can make faces out of random shapes if an “eye” is added to it.
