Illustrating a Comic Book Poem – Infront


Infront is illustrated in a Manga style – although not entirely. I am a big fan of manga and anime and I’ve always shied away from working in this style as it can be a bit overdone. I therefore developed a short piece with a character that could be  interpreted as being a manga character. For the three images I wanted them to be brief and unobtrusive. Therefore we see a crowd scene, a wide shot and a close up at the end that shows the emotion of the character. Saving the close up until the ends ensures that the imagery does not intrude on the reader and only gives the emotional pay off as a conclusion.
