Illustrating a Comic Book Poem – Retina Scan

Retina_Scan- Comic Book Poems

Again I used metallic marker pens to present the text. The panels on the other hand show a generic character going through the turmoil’s of insomnia. There are only three panels and the text takes up as much space as the illustrations. This is because I believe the text here does as much to move the story forward as the illustrations do.

This is another short Comic Book Poem where we deal with insomnia and the inability to sleep. Various factors can cause different people to stay awake. Sex, too much of it or even a lack of it can very much a source of insomnia.

Last night I
saw you naked, Uptight
Sleepless Nights

Illustrating a Comic Book Poem – Blind Shame

Blind Shame_ComicBookPoem

I purchased some metallic marker pens and I thought I’d put them to good use during this series, therefore expect several Comic Book Poems that are bright and shiny. The visuals on this Comic Book Poem are grotesque, yet that are also funny. The character is a weird eyeball monster that counteracts the “Pregnant Woman” in the text.

Writing a Comic Book Poem – Blind Shame

Blind Shame_ComicBookPoem

The text for this Comic Book Poem comes from a real life scene I witnessed of a woman attached to a drip, smoking cigarettes in a no smoking zone outside of a hospital. I formed the scene as a short Poem which is a haiku of sorts, although not a formal traditional one. Following Comic Book Poems in this series will take a similar structure.

Blind Shame
A pregnant woman
Outside a shut hospital
Smoking cigarettes.
