Cartooning Like You Mean It

Cartooning, Teaching & Living – by Tom Hart

Here are the four constraints that make up your fourth obstruction:

1. You must base your strip on a tracing of the following Roy Crane


You can add or subtract elements as you see fit, but this strip (including narration boxes) must be your starting point.

2. The narration of this strip must be a pangram, in other words,
every letter of the alphabet must appear at least once (as in The
quick brown fox, etc.)

3. The incident you relate in this strip must tell the story of a
case of mistaken identity (related to the pictures, of course).

4. You recently remarked that you despaired of ever mastering the use
of blacks, so let’s see if we can’t remedy that with some shock
therapy: 50% of the image in this comic must be solid black.

Viel Glück!

  1. Never mind about the strip. I found it in the Smithsonian Book, strip # 328 if anyone wants to locate it. Maybe I’ll rescan.
