First Draft

So I decided to go with a graphic novel because I didn't know why I wanted to play with form other then to just play with form. Sooo I have a script written that right now is fifteen pages (40+ panels). Click hereif you want to read it. I've also completed three pages of the comic so far and I'd post that here but I'm not completely happy with how they've turned out (I'll show them in class). I'm leaving a lot of blank space -- but at the same time it takes a long time to get to the point that they are like that. I have colored them in and despite it taking a long time I really think that aspect of the project makes it a little more legitimate.

If you already have 3 pages done, I don't think you need to worry about completing 15. You've got it under control.

As I said earlier, I very much like the idea of running constantly from something. After reading the script, I'm a little unclear still about what you mean your story to say to the reader, but I also like the fact that it's open to interpretation for the reader. So, that's sort of contradictory and not very helpful at all.

I'm excited to see the visual component of this. If you can evoke the sense of desperation in the running, and the sort of inhabited-yet-desolate landscape that you seem to be indicating in the script, it'll be really great.
