Chatter: Nick Dragotta

For a while I drew my comics and over-acted everything. Wide eyes, open mouths, everything was over the top. Now I think it’s much better to use that sparingly and let the reader inject themselves into the character by trying to draw more of a subtle emotion. Do the eyes have a soul? For me that’s were I try to start, and then over time the characters will just start to come alive. Comics visually speak a universal language, add to that just the right words and you can feel it in the gut.
