People need to accept that not all “cliches” are bad. People still like stuff like forbidden love stories, underdogs winning, and the dog biting back. The term cliche is negative, produces an image of all that is trite and boring, but actual cliches can be very good. Storytelling is built on cliches after all.
It’s not the cliche but how it is utilized by the author.
The first three absolutely happen in medicine.
First panel: Two words: Medical tourism
Second: You wouldn’t believe how many people think they know more about medicine then the people who studied it their entire adult life, just because they looked some shit up on the internet, and want to tell you all about how they know the TRUTH about vaccines or certain meds…the entire phenomenon of alternative medicine preys on these people.
Third: Yeah people skip out and change their minds constantly, and act entitled to your services. And if you don’t think patients try to not pay…More people than you’d think have to learn, no, not liking the price is not malpractice. Something turning out not exactly how you wanted it even though you were informed of the risks is not malpractice either.
Out of the kindness of my heart I put some crushed ice cubes in his water bowl and he stared at me for five minutes and circled the bowl trying to find a spot where the cubes wouldn’t touch his stupid fat cheeks while he drank. Ungrateful.

Tuesday Tips - Gesture Drawing
As a story artist, I feel like one of the most important technical skill to develop is the ability to draw things things clearly and fast. Practicing gesture drawing is, in my opinion, a good way to get better at it. I think it’s fun, too! Of course, you can draw from life and find unique things people and animals do, but I also think practicing gesture drawing from imagination is truly helpful. For instance, I usually do some gesture drawings of characters I’m about to work with in a sequence. It helps me find a short-hand to start building from. The simpler, the better. Especially early on a project, it really helps to find a quick way to draw a character over and over without repeating yourself all the time.
I remember Life Drawing teachers telling me to “draw from within” and to “feel the weight”. It’s absolutely true, but in terms of storyboarding, other elements came to be as important to the process. Silhouette and a sense of “cartooning” is tremendously helpful to communicate certain things clearly to an audience.
I’m only focusing on character posing right now (and this is just an introduction to the subject). Gesture drawing is very close to thumb-nailing, another ultra-helpful skill. More on that later.
For those who want to spend some money on great books on the subject, I highly recommend you to pick up “Drawn To Life: 20 Golden Years of Master Classes of Disney Master Classes” (Vol. 1 and 2) , from Walt Stanchfield. Do it.
