Draw a picture of where you are currently at: physical, mental, spiritual, social, economic, family/relationship, career. Use symbols, text, pictures, collages – whatever your imagination draws up.
Now draw a second picture on a separate sheet of paper of where you want to be.
Hang them on the wall next to each other.
You have just drawn a comic.
Scott McCloud, in his brilliant book called Understanding Comics, explains why comics are a powerful medium: you have two images that can be seen side by side. The magic of comics is that all of the action takes place in the space between the two images. We can’t see it, we have to imagine it.
Now look at the two pictures you drew again. Look at the space in between. See the contrasts between the pictures. What is the person on the right doing that the person on the left should be doing?
We can’t see the action to get us from here, to there, to Heaven knows where. But we can imagine it.
