Here’s a demo project I’m working on as part of a residency @ the Well School (Peterborough, NH). I’ll update this post with each stage of the project, so you can follow along in the creative process.
(A big thanks to my students & co-creators for their feedback & help as we all make “Animal Comics” together!)
START: The “Animal Comics” Template:
Here’s the basic template we’re all using to create 1-Sheet mini-comics about our chosen local wildlife:
RESEARCH: “Black Bears”
My chosen animal is the Black Bear. I have some black bears living in the woods near my house, but I need to look up some specific information about them to include in my comic.
I’m starting off with the “black bear” page @ NH Fish & Game…
Here are my penciled p.1 (front cover) and p.2-3 (habitat + food)…
Now I’m looking for READER FEEDBACK before I can ink these pages… Please feel free to comment.
- What do you notice?
- What’s confusing (or unclear or missing)?
- What decisions do you think the artist made, and why?
WORK IN PROGRESS ~ More to come! Stay ‘tooned…
