First Person – Graphic Novel – Development #2

As mentioned before I started to develop the line that goes through the narrative to connect each of the characters together. The continuous line throughout all the images I think could represent the idea of all 4 generations being blood related. The line subtlety changes colour when the generation changes, this is another ideation of a change in time which is something that Duncan said in his lecture about making sure the audience is aware of a change in time.

I decided to use a 4 column gird system and a guttering of 8mm as this I felt would allow the type and image to work together effectively. The margin is 5mm I thought this was a suitable size as this would allow the content of the book to have space to breathe from the edges of each page.

I think that the line adds an intriguing element to the page composition, and its clearly showing who the key individual in the photographs is. I have also included some key phrases and quotes that go along the lines to help show some context to certain elements of the photographs. The type is either black white or grey depending on the image that place upon.
