Persepolis and Graphic Novels

Tonight we discussed Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi and the essay Not Funnies by Charles McGrath. Next week the sequence is due.

Some notes on the sequence:

1. It should include at least four panels.

2. It does not have to have text.

3. It must have a narrative. I want you to tell a story, and it can be a personal story.

4. The paper is 1000 words and should include a discussion of your technique, artistic choices, and your narrative strategy.

One of the things I am looking at in these papers is your intention. I don't want to hear that it is in black and white because your printer ran out of color ink or that it is taped because your glue stick dried up. Every choice you make should have some kind of intention. Make it up if you have to. By making excuses it appears that you don't take your work seriously.
