So I'm taking a totally awesome comics class this semester that's split between pedagogy and practice. In addition to our readings (which sort of make me feel like a student in my old comics course--man, was I an awesome teacher!) we have little weekly comics we're asked to create. This past week we were asked to create a one-pager about a person we know as a metaphor. This assignment was given on the first day of class, and we'd also been discussing the comic teaching philosophy we'd be doing later in the semester. Consequently, "my" person became immediately evident: my mentor and friend, Dr. Regina Briefs-Elgin.
It took me awhile to decide on a metaphor for her, and the one I chose is probably a little cliché. But it still wraps up my feelings about what she taught me.
From a production stand-point, I'm not very happy about how small the print turned out (and it's almost unreadble here--any tips?), and I'd like to go back and shade it. Regardless, it was a good exercise and the first of many comics I'll be doing this semester (my main goal is to completely rework my comic syllabus), so any suggestions are welcome!
Questions? Quibbles? Controversies?
Edit: You can view the comic better here!
