The Minimalism of Frank Miller & Sin City
This week on Strip Panel Naked I take a little look at Frank Miller's Sin City: That Yellow Bastard. Specifically how I think it shows off Miller as a master of minimalism. Sin City's visuals are so stark, but there's a real genius to them, so I wanted to take a look at explaining some of that through the opening handful of pages of That Yellow Bastard.
It discusses how mostly the images are all made up by focusing on three specific things: theme, mood, and story. By using that as his focal point for every panel, Miller is able to condense and reduce every image to it's central point and idea.
