A new exercise I have been playing with.
Take a nine panel square page, pick a theme and then try and create panels that will read as a three panel short narrative in any direction you choose. It is very hard to get 16 distinct stories, a lot of the time it is just the same story backwards. What I am finding though is that the overall page comes to feel like a visual tone poem with the sense of the piece being created by the choice of the subject matter and placement of the first drawn panel.
After scanning and further work this page will be appearing on the Mundane Marvin website.
