SCORE AND SCRIPT


Two templates were derived from a single-page comic. 26 artists each received one of these templates, and created a new single-page comic in response. They were not allowed to see the original page, or each other’s works-in-progress. Score and Script was first exhibited at the Centre for Recent Drawing. Did the results throw any light on the mysteries of the art of cartooning? Comics critic Andy Oliver thought so. Read the commentary and judge for yourself.
