Scott McCloud is my hero

Scott McCloud bends the presentation format into a cartoon-like experience, where colorful diversions whiz through childhood fascinations and imagined futures that our eyes can hear and touch.

3 types of vision:

– religious – one can not see, unseen and unkowable
– science – proven or can be known
– may be, based on knowledge but can not yet be proven

4 rules:
– Learn from Everyone
– Follow No One
– Watch for Patterns
– Work like Hell

4 types of comics art as manifistation of “Watch for Patterns” rule correspond Yung’s 4 subdivisions of human thought

BEAUTY – ART – TRADITION – clasicist (classical style, beuty and craft) – sensation – (well compressed using library)
CONTENT – LIFE – TRADITION – animist (childish cartonnish, pure transperency of content) – intuition – (highest probable)
FORM – ART – REVOLUTION – formalist (strict style, understand how it works) – thinking (all back links (assumptions) are checked)
TRUTH – LIFE – REVOLUTION – iconoslast (artsy, authenticity of human expereince) – feeling – (well compressed using own rules)
