Away From Human Memory: Editing And Composition In Frank Miller's 'The Dark Knight Returns': Recently I read Miguel Corti's experimental comic Watchmen #13. A cut-up pdf created by numbering and randomizing the panels in Alan Moore and David Gibbon's Watchmen, the book is laid out along variations of the original's consistent nine-panel grid. It is a compelling read, one that made me think about the other major superhero comic of the same era. Another book that pursues it's narrative through a strict system of grids.

if you want to draw cartoons you should study life drawing and landscapes…: Keep it simple. A lot of animation is problem solving, whether it’s a complicated drawing, a difficult movement or a challenging camera angle. Rather than losing oneself in minute details, more often than not, asking oneself how can I communicate the story as simply & effectively as possible, leads to a painless solution. At those times when I struggle with a sequence of drawings, rather than staying late and obsessing over them, I simply stop, forget about them overnight and on reflection and with a clear mind the next morning, the solution is often obvious.
