Great and useful post as always Garr :)

Scott is a visual genius. His explanations of how time and movement can be relayed through static images is amazing. Back in the early 90's when Understanding Comics came out there were quite a few copies that ran through the PowerPoint team. Funny coincidence, I just cracked open his ZOT! collection to read last night.


An inspiring presentation, with such fluidity. The slides alone must have taken ages to prepare, but prove that effort is worth it for the impact on the audience.

This reminds me in a nice way of "Swimming to Cambodia" -- and what a great idea to make this talk into a slide show.

Inspiring! Got me thinking about the inauguration. (Will watch Scott on TED later as well, love TED)


i have to hold my head.. from exploding.
its so amazing that he manage to composed and present it visually about visuals of composition beyond the limitation of digital medium. thank yu for sharing Garr.

Hi Garr, I used to teach Understanding Comics when I worked in the U.C. Berkeley English Department as a writing text-- it worked like gangbusters.


you could try some of scott mccloud's tricks in a presentation using prezi. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks cool- it's a zooming presentation software that eschews the whole slide paradigm
