Graphic Novels to inspire us.

We looked at Chris Ware's Building Stories - to see how a master artist of the graphic novel designs his pages. Architecture, people, nature are all simplified into beautiful color schemes. Sometimes there's hardly any text. He will move from an entire streets cape to an extreme close-up. We talked about the panels being like frames from a movie, and we discussed how pages in a graphic novel tell stories that unfold in time, how our individual frames shape that experience of time.
