Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
The story of Snow is a mix between a true memory of my village dogs, and a made up story about the deep emotional connection between a young girl and her neighbour's dog. Presenting the story form the dog's point of view emphasizes the horrors child abuse. This small booklet was created as part for an academic course - the book of tomorrow, as is challenging traditional comic format conventions.

How was the illustration used:
"Snow" is an exploration in storytelling, and an expansion on the comic page format. The book has no grid, the frames are sized and positioned according to the story's needs. The story is silent, aside the of dedication on the inner cover reading "To Juno, the neighbour's dog". The dog and landscapes appearing in the book are greatly inspired by my home, a small village in northern Israel.

How did you make this work:
The technique used in this work was aimed to mimic traditional printmaking techniques. Each page was inked with a fountain pen in three stages. First, all the black lines were inked. Then using a lightbox all the red and grey lines were each drawn on a separate sheet of paper. The three sheets were scanned, and their colour was adjusted using Photoshop, and then placed on top of each other.
