As promised, here are the panels for the wrapper portion of Tales from the Fragment, my latest book/comic project. The prompt was to make a low-budget piece dealing with the term “mapping.” It’ll be printed in an edition of 15 for the class, but I’m inclined to adapt it for further production when that’s finished. We’ll see. Anyway, in order for the orientation and layout to make sense, I’ve included a quick n’ dirty photo walk-through of what the final project will look like below the illustrations.
Cover – Exterior
So, not the most glamorous photography in the world, and the choices for what goes where have also shifted somewhat, but the basic premise is the same. The illustrations above will be printed onto each side of the wrapper so that every step of unfolding it brings a new panel into view. The folded piece of 8.5″x11″ found inside the wrapper works on a similar system, ultimately leaving the reader with a full-page illustration of the map fragment that’s been stolen by our intrepid hero.
That’s all for now! Stay tuned for, uh, more of this? Also: gag panels for this week’s IPRC session! Woo-hoo!
