I sat in on a Sequential Art class last week with my friend, Kevin, and one of the assignments was to make a one page comic based on a single sentence given to them by a classmate. Since, tragically, I won’t be able to take that class this semester (or next, because it won’t be offered), I had Kevin give me a sentence and I tried to come up with a one page comic as quickly as possible.
“I rode an aardvark into town and for some reason, she got angry.”
I reeeaaallly want to do more of these. It’s like improv illustration. It’s hit-or-miss, for sure, but definitely a great exercise. Leave me a sentence – ANY sentence, random, boring, whatever – in the comments below, and I’ll see what I can do with it.
