New comic from Visual Narrative class. This one focuses on a lesbian couple. I've never drawn a female couple before so I thought I'd give it a try. It was national coming out day recently and due to the bullying and suicides over homosexuality recently, I really wanted to create this as something to show others that they aren't alone. Love who you are and be who you are.
Here is another cover for Haywire. I had another idea in my head and I couldn't resist giving it a try. I thought using white font for the title would be more fitting since I found the white string to be a main symbol of the book, representing both the purity and innocence of the child.
Another cover design for Graphic Design class. I still have to do some tweaking, but this is a current cover idea.
Here is the story Haywire by Chuck Kensler to get a better idea of the concept for the covers.
Angie left Virgil - left the baby too. For the past five months Virgil's been planning for today's homecoming.
Angie says in her fidgety bird voice, "Lo, Virg. Ain't too gooda day is it? Waddyathink, Virg, waddayathing?"
"Not so good. She's in the other room." A tear in the window shade angles light into a cardboard box where the baby lies dreamless. She is in her best clothes, as if dressed for a tea party. Virgil strokes her soft hair and pale cheek. He ties the lid closed with white string.
