Storytelling and cartooning by extension is not about detail. In fact I’d say it’s about the opposite. It’s about including only the information you need to tell the story and no more.
Which is why this LEGO creation by Chris Maddison is such a good lesson in storytelling. As he puts it:
I like to think we just missed the punchline of a joke about the red one, told by the yellow one
And when you look at the picture, you can see exactly that. As minimalist as they are, those little characters have personalities.
