Talking about the visual, narrative, and rhythmic nature of comics lettering on the Lean Into Art Cast!
Lettering used to be a specialized position in the comics industry. Thanks to software like Photoshop, Illustrator, and Manga Studio the tools of the professional letterer are now available to anyone. Are the tools enough to make one's lettering look professional, though? How does the work change when we think about lettering as yet another design tool in our visual communication toolbox? How does thinking about the visual, narrative, and rhythmic nature of sound elements lead us to more intentional choices on the page?
We'll be joined by Zack Giallongo, the cartoonist behind Broxo, Ewoks: Shadows of Endor, and The Stratford Zoo Midnight Review, for a discussion on making more design-oriented choices in lettering our comics.
