Abbott Street Culture Clash

This is a one-page jam comic I did with my friend Gabriel Frizzera a couple years ago. I just found it while cleaning, and figured I'd put it up.

...Somebody broke the 180 axis, though.

Great drawings.

Thanks guys!
But no, Rob, it still works. First off, comics always break the 180 rule. That's just for film and storyboards, generally.
But, the hobo turned around as the man called out to him in panel 3, and is facing the same way (POV perhaps of the book guy) thus it STILL adheres to the 180 rule as best as a motionless comic can in the limited number of panels.

Doctor Jones said...

Yer right. For comics I guess it is different.
I've seen it broken in films too, for instance when someones opinion changes, or "the tides are about to turn" kinda thing.

In film though, the axis would keep your homeless man on the left, once it's been established he's on the left.

Really I just wanted to bug ya. Haha. It's not disorienting in the least, and that's the important thing.

I really like this one.

NEither of you fools get it. the breaking of the 180 degree axis is SYMBOLISM for two characters who have decided to unanimously interchange their spirits and allow themselves to see through the others point of veiw.

the guy reading kind reminds me of gabriel. i wonder what book its refering to. Ive only read the plague. This took me about 20 seconds to get the punchline but i laughed when i did finally get it.

Thanks K-Man, the book I was referencing was The Stranger (alternatively known as The Outsider, or the original French title L'Etranger) by Albert Camus.
Thanks for checking out my blog!
