Better than a comic book

In a comic book, narrative style, this drawing by Chris Cornwell, is a really nice example of moving that context into something more...taking into account the entire picture plane and unifying the composition...a traditional mistake made by comic book artists is to focus on each individual square, concentrating on the narrative and the stylistic elements of the image...good artists know that individuals respond best to those pages that deal with the full picture plane as well as the individual window narratives...

Circular forms are used throughout to reinforce the overall page, in the center top, center middle and all three sections of the addition, the flowing threads work to move the viewer around visually and become another unifying element...The brick forms are geometric elements that contrast the organic...the use of texture in the background areas, create another dimension of interest...a tight composition.
