Wally Wood's 22 panels that always work

I did a little composition exercise recently.  There is a legendary reference sheet for graphic novel and comic artists called "Wally Wood's 22 panels that always work".  Evidently it was developed to help artists new to the demands of sequential art cope with conversation-heavy scripts.  Another title for this might be, "how to keep things visually interesting when nothing's happening".  You can see a printout of the original sticking out on the right.

Mary Did You Know teasers

I'm working out a new sand piece for Koine's Tenebrae service.  The song is "Mary Did You Know?"  It clocks in at 2:36 minutes.  My high school students think 5 minutes is a short time to draw their hands!
While thinking about this, Kathe Kollwitz came to mind.  After paging through my book on her prints I'm realizing more and more that I could treat the sand table like a relief print.
