At first I thought I would come up with the design of this book. Then I realized I cannot really do that without a narrative to the story. So I have started writing the narrative for my comic book. I have also been doing a bunch of visual research and inspiration
n. I have a few questions remaining though before I began to design my actual book.
Sketched comic look V.S. All vector
Black and White V.S. color
Animal characters V.S. human
Myself as a cartoon V.S. a super hero for the comic theme
My Script...So far.
- Hi I am _____.
- We as humans interact with other people everyday.
- Our world is made up of several systems. It can be anything from the Solar system to our digestive systems.
- But have you ever thought of the way we interact or communicate as a system?
- Well… probably not, but I am going to explain the system of communication to you.
- Everything starts with a sender. The sender is the one with the thought or message.
- The sender wants to say, think, or express some thing or idea.
- This idea comes from what the sender believes or thinks. The sender is the author of this thought.
- For example in the child hood game of telephone, the sender would be the person starting the message.
-Or in the case of this book, I am the sender sending a message to you!
-Pretty simple right?
-Ok moving on…
- The next step would be the message.
- This is the actual content that the sender is sending out.
- It can be verbal or non verbal.
- It provides information, and is dependent on the context it is put in.
- It is a source to the person who will be receiving it.
- In our society today it can take many forms, which comes in channels.
- Referring back to the game of telephone, this would be what was whispered and passed around in the circle.
- In the context of this book it is anything I am telling you.
- Channels are the different forms the message can take.
- It acts as a transmitter used to convey the information from the sender.
- This can be many different things such as a telephone, computer, t.v., letter, even music.
- It would take a whole book just to list the different forms this could take.
- The people passing the message from ear to ear in the game of telephone act as a channel.
- The pages of this book are a channel to give the message to the reader.
- Do you get it?
- Noise is anything that can interrupt the message along the way.
- It can often impact the way we perceive the message and could possible alter the intent of the original message.
- Noise in the game of telephone could be the whispering , which may be too quiet to hear.
- It could even be music playing too loudly in the background.
- Noise while reading this book could be you cannot see well, or maybe the lighting in the room is too dark.
- Or maybe I am just boring you and you are getting tired.
- WAKE UP!
- The message has almost reached is point!
- The person receiving this message is, of course, the receiver.
- They then decode and interpret the message and evaluate their own idea or thought.
- In the case of telephone this is the last person in the circle who hears the message.
- In the case of this book, it’s you silly!
- Now quick evaluate what you are reading. Because it is time for feedback
- Feedback is what was processed from the message and gets sent back to the sender.
- Many systems have obvious input and output.
- In the case of the game telephone the feedback is what the last person says what they thought was heard.
- In the case of this book, it is what you are getting out of it.
- It could also be criticism on the book from others.
