The Prague

Every now and then, the Savannah College of Art and Design offers Sequential Art students and Alumni the opportunity to submit short comics to the SCAD Sequential Art Anthology.
This year, the theme is "Travel."
For my entry, I did an eight-page comic inspired by my trip to Prague in the Winter of 2001.
I tried a new working-method for this comic, treating each panel as an individual illustration rather than trying to think about the page as a whole. This allowed me to put more detail into each composition, and ensure that almost every panel got equal development. I had some photographs sitting around from my visit to Prague, so I decided use more photo reference for the backgrounds. Below, you can see the original photographs, the sketches I based off of them, and the inked backgrounds that I used in the comic.

Making this comic was a highly stressful yet rewarding experience. I had to push myself a bit to do the very best I could. I do not know whether my submission will be accepted to the SCAD Anthology or not, but I feel that I have stepped into a new realm of cartooning as a result of the project's completion.

Thanks for reading!
