Illustrating a Comic Book Poem – Photobooth

Basic character design and a basic panel layout were the way to go when presenting this Comic Book Poem. Photobooth reflects the type of image that is taken inside a Photobooth. I wanted to show a couple trying to get their photograph taken inside a booth. However they do not get on and start to argue.

I kept the characters basic so they did not draw attention away from the text. As the poem was short I did not feel the need to develop a complicated and complex image.

Photobooth - Comic Book Poem

I made use of Marker Pens and water colour paper but done the lettering digitally, printed the text on sticker paper and stuck it on the page. I then took a photograph of the page and this is what you see when you view the Comic Book Poem. I did this for two reason. Firstly, purely because the page had to exist in the real world as opposed to digitally. The Comic Book Poem was part of an exhibition during the Edinburgh Fringe (more info here) so it had to be exhibited in public. Secondly I thought that a photograph of the page would follow on from the photography theme of the poem.
