Recently I’ve been experimenting with an idea for the book I’m working on for my MA.
The idea, in its current state, is a story revolving around a round a group of friends (who happen to be animals) exploring they’re local punk scene together. Maybe they form a band? I dunno. Either the way the book will heavily feature the crossover between punk and queer culture and sitting outside of societal norms.
Visually I’m playing around with a collage look, using photos printed on drafting film layered on top of one another. Over the next few weeks I’ll be working on a comic to decide how viable that is for a long form project.
Could I just replicate that effect on photoshop? Of course. But that’s not nearly as fun and I want to be more hands on with this project rather than it being solely screen based.
