Well, actually it’s Understanding Comics. It’s a (comic-) book by Scott McCloud and already a bit older. If you have a chance to pick it up, give it a try. Superficially it’s about comics, but it’s actually a deep treatise about the principles of visual art in general. Even though I’m not a creator or even dedicated consumer of comics, I’m in awe of the artistic aspects. That may come a bit as surprise to people who (being cruel I’d say by conditioning) think of ‘fine art’ in connection with the term, but I think doing good comic art is one of the pinnacles of the craft, because doing it well requires such an extensive set of skills and understanding of the principles behind visual art.

So here is the up ahead question - you are interested, either because of the giveaway or simply because you like events, what would you prefer (multiple choices) in this context: Your own: 1 - Create a piece of art of your own choice and type 2 - Create a piece of art to a general theme like 'Spring, Beach, Melancholy' (Specifiy topic if you like) 3 - Create a piece of fanfiction art of a limited choice (like Star Wars, Harry
