Illustrating a Comic Book Poem – Truth


For Truth I used various objects and methods including needle and thread. I illustrated the Comic Book Poem on watercolour paper and used the needle and thread to add the stitches. They are tangible, real and they exist on the page and I believe that this gives the Comic Book Poem a degree of authenticity that would have been absent if I had created this effect  digitally in Photoshop. I believe that the honesty in the words deserved an honest and real approach in the visuals.
