Poynter Institute points to A.D. and The Influencing Machine

Mallary Jean Tenore of the Poynter Institute for Media Studies just posted a comprehensive look at "comics journalism" using two of my projects as models. Tenore’s piece, "Journalists, Artists Tell Stories with Nonfiction Graphic Novels," looks at the potential for using comics as a journalism tool, and she talked extensively to me and my Influencing Machine collaborator Brooke Gladstone in doing it. I discuss my process as a "reporter" and then artist in doing A.D., and then how that process will shift in working with Brooke. And Brooke has some very insightful things to say about writing as a journalist and then learning to write for comics.

The Poynter Institute is a school and journalism resource institue located in St. Petersburg, Florida, They’re the parent company of the St. Petersburg Times and Congressional Quarterly, and also publish Jim Romenesko’s media insider blog. Check out the piece if you’re interested in such things.
