Word Chain

So this one pager was created as the result of a word chain. I started with the word "love" and changed one letter each time until I got to the word "hate."I think the order was love, live, hive, have, hate. So each word become a panel, and each panel is a little beehive hair clip because I thought it would be so adorable. Plus the word "hive" suggested it.

The Curse of the Mummy

Here's another comic I did for Matt Madden's class. This ones a four pager, it needs some re-working on the first page but for the most part it's done. As for the rules on this one it was based on a poetic form-a pantoum. So a pantoum is about four stanzas long, the 2nd and 4th line of each stanza becomes the 1st and 3rd line of the second stanza. Also, the 1st and 3rd line of the first stanza become the last two lines of the very last stanza. I adapted this to the comics form by making a stanza equal to a page, and a line became a tier. So four stanzas became four pages, and four lines per stanza became 4 tiers a page. I added another twist to it by putting the panels of the repeating tiers in reverse order. 
I hope this makes sense, if you're confused and want to know more just message me!


So here is a comic I did in Matt Madden's "Obstacles" class. This was done pre-election, when I was still feeling pretty nervous about what the outcome would be. This comic had to follow a few rules. Every panel had to feature a symptom of anxiety, as well as offer a solution that was both cheeky and a possible way to deal with that specific aspect of anxiety.
