My Evolution

As a final project for Visual Explanations - thinking about the concept of visual analogies in comics with colleague Andrea Kantrowitz. Created this quick overview of how my process has developed over the last few years and what issues i'm interested in exploring in the medium. - N

Excerpts from my work include:

Excerpts from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons "Watchmen" and
Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie "This is Information"

quilt of student stories

I was asked by Erick Gordon head of TC's Student Press Initiative (SPI) to do a comic corresponding to the project they were doing in 5 schools with all English as a second language students. SPI works with schools and students to produce books of their own writing. This group of students came from all over the world - Bangladesh, Haiti, Pakistan, China - and most had been year less than a year. A lot of powerful stories that will be told in the five SPI books of student stories - and i wove together elements from a number of them here. - Nick
