So I go to the School of Visual Arts for cartooning and have David Mazzucchelli for my portfolio teacher. Okay now that fellow cartoonists sufficiently hate me moving forward. I showed David six pages I had completed for the comic Menu (by Matthew Rosenberg and Patrick Kindlon which can be read here). David proceeded to give me the harshest critique I’ve ever received and simultaneously change my entire outlook on story telling. The man is fucking genius. Above is the first two pages of the story with the first page being my original idea and the latter after having recieved a Mazzucchelli critique. I am forever in debt to that man.
