Notes from “Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art” Chapters 7 and 8:

-Art is born when we are not focused on survival or reproduction

-Individuality is expressed in art but also allows: exercising the mind, balancing emotions, and discovering new ideas

-Work in any medium will follow the same path

-Idea/purpose, form, idiom, structure, craft, surface

-Artists have often reached people by either changing the way they form their work or using gripping storytelling

-Color has many possibilities in art

-Commerce and Technology are the reasons comics do not consistently use color

-Bright colors in comics are available now because of new technology

-Certain characters are related to certain colors

-Scenes become subjective or objective with color

-Black and white: ideas directly communicated Flat colors: shapes and space Expressive color: sensational environment
