I bought & awesome book ‘Mastering Comics’ yesterday and have been doing some of the exercises today!

The top picture is an exercise where you draw 6 random shapes/marks in a 6 panel grid and then build on it to make a strip… I ended up with a thirsty giant who has a drink from a river.

The bottom picture is an exercise where you draw something from your surroundings and then develop it into a strip… I started with a picture of my cat curled up on a little table in front of the TV and then he hears on the news that cats are taking over New York!

I also attempted the word ladder exercise, but it turned out a bit poo so I’m not going to post that one! It’s great exercise though, really gets you thinking!

This book is really helping my inspiration, and motivating me loads!
