This lively new book introduces the power of the storyboard in the creative process: from brainstorming ideas to developing, revising, and finalizing stories. It describes an eight-stage process that shows, step-by-step, how students can create unique, action-filled pages for their stories and books. Get Graphic! describes the principles of design, and explores artistic techniques such as perspective and grounding, light and shadow, layout and spatial relationships, and more. Organized for easy classroom use, planning suggestions, glossaries of visual terms, and ready-to-copy storyboards are all a part of the active process described.
