What I Drew In Church This Week

The 23/7 demands of The Day Job have kept me from doing much drawing of late, but at least I managed this during today's sermon (on "Forgiveness," a good Lenten kinda topic). Back in the choir after a month's hiatus (I was keeping busy finishing two books and putting together four grant applications...)

I did tear myself away from The Day Job mid-week to attend a fantastic lecture at my daughter's school by the brilliant Scott McCloud, author of "Understanding Comics," "Reinventing Comics," and "Making Comics" (among other titles, including his own comic "Zot!"). And that really made me want to draw more, more, more. Excellent dissection and explanation of comics as sequential narration. Best powerpoint presentation I've ever seen -- and 700 images in a little less than an hour. You can see a version of the same lecture I saw here on Ted.
