When I think of Will Eisner the first thing that comes to mind is not watercolor paintings. The first thing is heavy black-and-white drawings, deep dark shadows, and razor-sharp brush lines, a mix of film noir, and an almost-Disneyesque approach to a cartoon representation of the world. But here are some of Eisner's watercolors. They are not as bold and confident as his pen-and-ink work. The thin washes hint to me at an unsure self-consciousness. Instead of simple lines and shapes denoting objects far in the distance we have delicate abstract washes of color. The thing that remains at the foundation is a mastery of visual storytelling. I mean, he did after all write a book titled Graphic Storytelling and Visual Narrative. Regardless of what medium he's working in, no one else can touch Eisner's ability to imbue an image with Story.
