Here’s another sample panel from the comic I’m working on, written by Shon Toney.

Of Birds and Bunnies

I explained briefly in a previous post that I was making a comic-format myth for my final project in Trevor Dodge’s Illuminated Manuscripts class.  I give you “The Dove and the Hare,” a tale for children.

In researching this project, I discovered that where we Westerners see a man in the moon, many other cultures worldwide saw a rabbit.  The dark spots on the surface of the moon represented a rabbit pounding corn in South America, a rabbit drumming in Japan, and even a rabbit holding an egg in Europe.  It being the month of Easter, I decided to write a story about how the rabbit and the egg came to be way up there on the moon (and how dinosaurs became extinct, incidentally).

The Rabbit in the Moon

To show a bit about my process, I’ve posted the first page of a comic I’m working on right now, along with the thumbnail roughs that I used to arrange the layout.  You can see that not too much has changed between them.  The story is a myth about the Moon Rabbit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_rabbit), a story that has surprising similarities across the world, and how he ended up on the moon in the first place.

And here are a couple sketches I doodled in class while listening to a guest talk by Joelle Jones and Jamie Smith.
