Bird Cage Seance
I have seen some weird clip-art, believe me. But you have to wonder about this one. For what possible use was it created? Did the artist know these people? Why did he/she leave out most of their bodies?
I’ve recently been thinking about what, if anything, I am trying to prove with PartiallyClips. I used to think that my point was that the writing in comics is more important than the art, and that I was presenting an extreme case…someone who can create a successful and entertaining comic with no drawing ability in play. But I realized that the art is as much a part of this strip as the writing. These strips don’t work very well as jokes (most of them)…they need the visual elements to convey the humor.
It’s not a revolution or a statement. It’s just backwards from the normal way of writing a comic. I don’t think of something funny and draw a picture of it; I take a picture and think of something funny about it. Either way, the end product is a comic strip.
