Seth’s storytelling advice to Noah Van Sciver. And you too, if you’d like…

Write about losers and loners. Don’t get dragged down that road of trying to resist your natural inclinations.

Seth

Noah Van Sciver has a YouTube channel.

Yeah!

The prolific cartoonist generously shares his works in progress, conversations with colleagues, and on occasion, words of encouragement.

A few days ago he read a letter of storytelling advice from fellow cartoonist, Seth.

Warning!

The letter contradicts most storytelling advice you’ve heard.

Keep drawing y’all.

Four Panel Friday: Johnny Appleseed



I’m only now starting to dig into Paul Buhle and Noah Van Sciver’s Johnny Appleseed.

Johnny Appleseed (aka John Chapman) was the original American hipster. He traveled across the United States on foot. He kept a rockin’ beard. And he lived with minimal possessions.

His ideas and legend spread. Not by an instant digital network, but through conversations, tall tales, and the written word.
