Illustrating a Comic Book Poem – Faces – 2

Faces – 2 follows on Faces -1 from Series 3 of Comic Book Poems. Visually it follows on in the same style, in as much as that all the panel are of portraits. I feel this style is fitting and works well with the text. I see it as almost a P.O.V comic, with the protagonist looking at all the faces. Expect more Comic Book Poems using this method in the future.

Writing a Comic Book Poem – Faces – 2

Faces – 2 is about finding something. What that something is is up to the reader. It’s also about the difficulty of fitting in. The text is fairly obvious. The visuals are also fairly obvious as the protagonist is searching for someone, but it is up to the reader is they find that person or not.

Illustrating a Comic Book Poem – Signs

Signs uses digital illustrations to tell the story of the creative and experimental poem. For the visuals I wanted to reflect the signs and present them as a haphazard circle around the perimeter of the image. Here we show that the problems go round and round and do not necessarily get solved. The circle also shows that the signs are from all around the world, however the discarded nature of the signs underline that the issues may not be prevalent to all.

Writing a Comic Book Poem – Signs

Signs is a short one page experimental poem that takes words and phrases from protests signs and creates a found poem.  It is quick and easy but it looks to create an image from different phrases. The protests that the signs come from are from all over the world. They present different people, with different backgrounds, fighting for different causes.
