Questions based on reading Show & Tell.
I’ve never understood why some people don’t consider comics an art form, especially modern day comics. My question is why not? What is it about comics that keeps some people from considering them art? Could comics do anything to change that? Is it the words involved? The way panels are arranged? Subject matter? Style? Relating these queries back to digital art isn’t difficult, as we’ve discussed before that digital art often struggles to be considered in the same arena as other art forms.
And what caused us to create such a divide between words and pictures? It seems natural that they would go hand in hand – they did once. Was it for more specificity? Native ability? Not all writers can draw and not all those who can draw are good with the written word, but often, anyone can string a sentence together. Does this relate to the reasons for the gap?
