I've been meaning to post a link to this for a few days now, but the Thanksgiving holidays kinda swept me away from my computer. Anyway, Mark Seigel, editor of the sure to be ballyhooed First Second line, posted on the FS blog recently about the Visual Storytelling conference, where cartoonists and video game developers met to chew the fat. He comes away with some interesting insights into the differences/similarities between the two industries, as well as some great quotes.
On another, completely unrelated note, if you can track down last week's issue of the New Yorker, there's a plethora of swell cartoons in there, including a three-page strip by Aline and Robert Crumb on Aline's recent plastic surgery. Plus, there's a spread of gags by Lee Lorenz and a really good 2-page Roz Chast cartoon. Well worth perusing if you get the chance.
