Comic Guru

Good advice from comics guru Scott McCloud. So much good stuff in this TED talk, but here’s something that sticks out to me. Three types of vision:

1. Vision based on what one can not see (unseen and unknowable)
2. Vision based on what has been proven (or has been seen)
3. Vision based on what can be, what may be based on knowledge (but is not yet proven)
What Scott is saying is that there are many ways to pursue a vision based on what can/may be. People are doing this in science, the arts, politics, personal endeavors, etc. What it all comes down to, says scott, is this:

* Learn from everyone
* Follow no one
* Watch for patterns
* Work like hell

These four guidelines will take you far indeed as you create your own life story.
