i haven't been arting for too many reasons. but I wanted to drop a note here about this site i have recently learned of:
The Grid System is an incredibly useful and interesting site about grids. grids make the world go, as any comics artist would know first hand.
i think seeing the philosophy behind their use in other fields is pretty valuable. also directly applicable to all the web stuff today's cartoonist/illustrator is pretty much obligated to do.
happy holidays, and may all your type adhere to a baseline grid.
