Advice From a Caterpillar,illustration by Sir John Tenniel

It’s Friday and this is my weekly post for my  illustration class at Meramec Community College. First ,here are the answers to my questions from my post of Feb.10,2012.

1.The name “Mad Hatter” was not used in the chapter A Mad Tea Party. 2. Alice was about two feet high at the beginning of A Mad Tea Party. This answer is found at the end of the chapter titled Pig and Pepper. 3. Alice was about a foot high at the end of A Mad Tea Party. 4. The house of the March Hare had chimneys shaped like ears and the roof was thatched with fur. I gave this assignment to stress the importance of reading the text before illustrating a story.

Today’s blog is about a “point of view” used in illustrations and movies. The first link is from the website of D.B. Dowd Illustration & Graphic Journalism  and is an essay titled Comics and Cinema. 

One of my favorite movies is High Noon and I have several posts on my blog about points of view in this movie. One post is about time and clocks and the other is from the scene where the marshal of a small western town is alone on a street waiting to face four killers.

The final link is from a post on my blog about the comic artist Alexander Toth and a story he illustrated in the comic Frontline Combat.

These links all have to do with “point of view”. One definition of “point of view” is: the position from which something or someone is observed.
