Comic Strip Artist's Kit

Temple of the Seven Golden Camels: Comic Strip Artist's Kit (Redux)

Finally! A new comics post!
This is pretty cool, some sage advice on panel and page layouts. Everybody just starting to do comics or cartooning should study these pages. They address some of the most common pitfalls you face when just charging in to create a comic.

The other day I got an e-mail from Carson Van Osten, a famous Disney artist who did many Disney Comic Books and created the famous "Comic Strip Artist's Kit". It was created to help beginning comic artists deal with perspective problems and other drawing difficulties. I scanned my old xeroxes a while ago. It's probably the best thing I've ever seen about practical staging and drawing for storyboards or comic books.
