Whazamo! The Art of Story

Share |

Graphics vs Novels! As part of Whazamo! Ontario Graphic Novel Month, we asked cartoonists to share a story of one book that has inspired them as artists, as storytellers, as people. Opening a window, a panel if you will, into the mysterious process of inspiration. The following conversation with 4 of the artists explores the differences between the mediums of books and comics—and shows how when you combine art and storytelling, anything can happen.
