Graphic stories can be a way to communicate ideas, stories, research, and information in a way that connects your work to audiences in meaningful and exciting ways. Graphic stories can be used to tell stories about communities and organizations, people and places, science, health, advocacy and activism, legal concepts, travel, history, and more.
To create a graphic story:
- I write or convert a story to a comic script, similar to a film script.
- Do visual research on images in the story.
- Design the page and panel layouts.
- Pencil and ink or colour the pages.
- Scan and optimize the pages for print and web in Photoshop.
Recent projects include illustrating a graphic history about the publisher Between the Lines. See more of my non-fiction and fiction comics at makerofnets.ca and my work with the Graphic History Collective.
