UNIT 2

Page Building

PAGE DESIGN—SOUNDS BORING, RIGHT? You’re probably ready to start drawing comics already. But a basic understanding of the page is necessary if you want to make comics that work. The art of page building—how you place a panel within a tier, a tier within a page, and a page within a spread—is an essential part of cartooning. Through careful design you can set the tempo of your page and make certain moments magic. So dive right into Unit 2—page design isn’t as boring as you might think.
