For my Honors Senior Capstone Project, I am exploring the methods of 1970s -1990s newspaper comics, focusing specifically on the comics “Calvin and Hobbes”, “The Far Side”, “Garfield”, and “Cathy”. I present and engage with these comic artists’ opinions, methods, and experiences. Additionally, I delve into my personal experience and motivation behind comics. My final product culminating these findings is a 2D Whiteboard Stop Motion animation approximately 8 minutes long, accompanied by a voiceover and script.
