I was given the following brief as part of my studies.
'Graphic Novel Or Children's Book.
Create a narrative about some aspect of the riots using the information you hear in this short film which was shown on childresns TV in August www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/14507794'
What developed from this brief was a not-to-be-taken-seriously illustrated guide for dealing with riots, aimed at police officers, giving useful tips on proper conduct during social unrest.What i had in mind was a book designed to be defusingly humorous and fun, in stark contrast to the serious subject matter.These images reflect the tongue in cheek and silly atmosphere the book has. The hand-drawn illustrated type being integral to the overall feel of the book.
Moustaches and police brutality aplenty!
