Graphic Novel

As we discussed Persepolis and the effectiveness of the graphic novel, I thought it would be useful to try to express myself through a comic to experience first hand the limitations and advantages to this form. I found images allowed me much more freedom than words in instantly portraying the reactions. But it is difficult to show the emotions motivating movements. After trying to draw a comic and myself, I have an increased appreciation of the layers in Persepolis. Sorry this was posted very late in the week. I had trouble figuring out how to post an image.
