Just Like uses 3 separate images to present the story. Each image relates to the text that it is next to. For the illustrations I didn’t want to get too precise and wanted a free and easy approach. I think this comes across. As with other Comic Book Poems in this Series I used metallic marker pens.
El Topo is a film by director Alejandro Jodorowsky. I wanted to briefly convey what this movie entails through the short haiku like Comic Book Poem. I think the text conveys a confident and proud character without being too descriptive or wordy. Never the less the text for the Comic Book Poem is given below, so please give it a read and also check out the completed page above.
All he can hear
Is clicking Cuban heels
Just like El Topo.
Here is a teaser/preview for the Sixth Comic Book Poem in Series 9. It is called Just Like and will go live on 24 October 2016. Check back at the blog to see the final Comic Book Poem.
This Comic Book Poem is fairly obscure and only really works in tandem with the visuals. The text gives little away, but it does show the we are dealing with communication and how people interact verbally. Give the text a read below, but in this instance you should really read the Comic Book Poem along with the visuals, which will be explained in the “Illustrating a Comic Book Poem – Out Come The Wolves” blog post which will be on the website tomorrow.
Out Come The Wolves
The wolves are out
And they are speaking English
Wasting my time
