In trying to keep up with the new goal I set for this blog just a year ago, ("to share random notes on urban sketching, art, illustration, journalism and all things drawn,") I'm going to start posting a roundup of my favorite web finds of the week every Sunday. If you find it useful, I invite you to share the post with others.
So, without any more explanation, here's the first installment of my Sunday Night Links!
2Interesting comments on Photography vs. drawing by legendary photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson —also a sketcher!— in Picture-It, the always enlightening blog by professor Fred Lynch, of RISD and Montserrat College of Art.
3Unusual Q&A by Rolling Stone Magazine with comic book artists Chris Ware, Daniel Clowes and brothers Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez, "the four horsemen of Alternative Comics." In the interview, Ware shares this tidbit that kept me thinking. He's right. Comics are not illustration, they are drawn stories.
"I've fought the idea of comics being illustration many times. To even mention them in the same breath is not helpful. If you're illustrating stories, then you're not writing comics. The real power of comics is writing as you draw." —Chris Ware
