story sketch: unfolding wings [update: 04-15-2011]

This sketch is based on "unfolding wings," the first in a series of beautiful poems by [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith about the Origami Mage, an Eastern style hero from an asian inspired fantasy world. Please visit Penultimate Productions for more of the Origami Mage and her rival the Kirigami Mage (along with some other fantastic poetry series!)

I like the composition here with the scene/detail contrast in the two panels. It makes me think of it as an excerpt from a larger manga-like treatment of the poems...


I had not thought of that with regards to this poem, although I have considered rendering other poems in graphic form. Come to think of it, wbm turned one of my poems into a graphic, "The Engineer in His Cups," which was awesome.

This would be one way to shift a poetic series toward chapbook length. I dunno what it would do to the price, though. Graphics in general, and color in particular, tends to run the price way up. We were thinking along the lines of a collectible art book, though, if it could be made to work.
