These are the first studies for a comic book project I am working on. I choose the theme "People I Wish I Knew" because I am having trouble with the story- I figure when I know my characters better, the story will become more clear. The comic book will be in the form of a play, with stage directions, sets, cues for music and other sound, etc.
These are photographs taken in a deconstructed doll house (the set), with actors (dolls). I use a collage-like process to add images I find in magazines, old books, old photographs, and my own artwork to the set. I convert the photograph to a sketch, using the app SketchBook. In the finished version, these will be printed on paper and hand colored, with other collage elements and lettering added.
I am thinking about memory, childhood, fairy tales, horror stories, the Victorian era, and the relationship between author, director, character, and viewer/reader.
Sounds dreadful, written out like that! But I think it will be entertaining in the end.
