Drawing Words & Writing Pictures: Imageless Comic

Another challenging exercise we did in class was to create a one-page comic story with no images - just sound effects and word balloons against a black or white background, using the absence of images as a factor in the story. The purpose of this was to make us focus strictly on the storytelling and layout, and not to get hung up on the art. My classmates came up with a number of intersting solutions to this challenge, such as a story set during a power outage, a conversation between characters in the woods at night, and a particularly moving tale told from the point of view of a blind person. My story portrays a pretty common morning scenario from my everyday life... (I don't think this one displays very well in the blog post, don't forget you can always click on the image to see it in a bigger size)
