Northwest Alternative Comics: Jaclyn Seifert


The example I chose to write about was one from David Lasky. Lasky, an artist from Seattle has been drawing comics and writing for over 20 years. The Northwest Alternative comics selected artist who was willing to reinvent the way we look and experience the art of comics and graphic arts.

In this example, Lasky does just that by using the design elements of size, texture, and shape. By reading his artwork as a sequence, these people, who are actually the artist themselves, were people clustered together. An example of size is that Lasky himself, which seems to be him, is holding an above-average size of some type of ink pen or brush.

He uses the design principle of contrast by each people with there own speech bubble. Within these speech bubbles, they each uniquely showcase their own type of artwork that they create. Everyone is sitting in the grass, yet each artist has and does something different about one another. Each speech bubble represents that artists own particular style where they contrast each other.

Some examples of closure and time frames could potentially be that this from far away does not necessarily look like a comic but this can be contradicted when presented with the argument with the speech bubbles. This was the second biggest comic and this affects my interpretation of the comic.
