I could have sworn, that after last year's Foo Fest I posted about the great Comics of Scott McCloud, but now I can't find it. Guess life caught up with me.
Loved his presentation at the Fest. He develops comic strips and explores the possibilities that the web is offering him for his chosen art.
It is a beautiful little trick that he is using in his current strip. A mini version of the next picture is always in the center of the current one. Once you click to get the next frame, it expands from the middle. The effect is, that you feel like you are falling through a dream. A beautiful blue dream in the case of "The right Number".
It would be great, if micropayments would work, giving creative people a way to make a living and all of our lives richer.
Would love to have him talk about his experiences and current outlook with micropayments at one of the next Future Salons too.
