The Near-Sighted Monkey
Making Comics: Art 448, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Fold a sheet of copier paper into nine chambers. Find some one with a timer. Use a Flair pen to draw a castle in the first chamber in three minutes. Draw a castle in the next chamber for two minutes, then the third chamber for one minute. Then 45 seconds, 30 seconds, 20 seconds, ten seconds, five seconds. 
This assignment from Ivan Brunetti’s syllabus in “Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice” which is the beloved text book of this class. Brunetti talks about a kind of line that is so specific to cartooning that time limits can help us find. Our Making Comics class will be using Brunetti’s book as our only text book for the entire semester. Because that book really is that badass.
