SPACE

In September I started my MA in Sequential Design and Illustration. One of the first projects I was tasked with was creating a visual narrative in response to Ursula K Le Guin’s essay The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction. The final pages for this comic were produced in a week and looking at it now I’m not really sure how I managed to do that.

Super Spectacle

More experiemental work.

This is my final uni project; I wanted to make a sort of graphic guide to Guy Debord’s 1967 book “Society of the Spectacle”, taking critical parts from his writing and contextualising it for a contemporary audience. Above are some of the pages from the book. At this point, it’s “done”, but it is something I’d like to return to later in the year.

Sometimes it’s good to break away from the norm, and that’s what I’ve been trying to do as much as possible this year with my work.

Between the Panels

At the end of last year, I had a little chat with fellow comics person Jack Hugh Baker.

I wanted to experiment with how to layout an interview transcript as a comic so I formatted it as if we were on a podcast.

This is also the first time I’ve tried to emulate classic comic style colouring using CMYK halftones, I enjoyed the limited colour palette, I think it’ll be something I try again in the future. Maybe in a more analogue form like risograph.

Duzida Back-Up Comic

I’ve been using the printed version of Duzida to write short comics that add something to world.

Here’s the comic from issue 2 which takes place around a year before the issue 1 begins.

I’m working on one for issue 3 as I write this about the Metazurians reaching Earth for the first time. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about you can read Duzida here) They’re also a good excuse for me to experiment with layouts, which will be more apparent with the next one.
