Interview With Ryan North
Excerpt from interview:
Does having static artwork give you more time to write and arrange better dialog or just more time to do other things? I read that it's not unusual for you to spend 2-3 hours working on a single comic. Would it be a day-long project if you had to do daily artwork or would you try to cut down on writing time?
I honestly don't know how real cartoonists do it. It takes me 3 hours to write a comic, but then it's usually only a few minutes to lay it out and get the voice lines just right. If I were drawing pictures it would easily take me that long, if not longer, or I'd have super terrible drawings. I think some compromise is needed for people who aren't talented visual artists, and as I am a 100% not talented visual artist, I compromised pretty heavily there. But let's not call it compromise! Let us call it "a novel and aggressive exploration of the visual aesthetic and narrative structure inherent to the sequential arts".
