Last semester I took a lit. theory class. We had an assignment where we could do anything we wanted as long as it demonstrated something about English literature and theory. I started out making a CD, a song cycle of original material that would include major movements all set to the rhythm of a drum machine. What a bad idea. I still have the rhythm tracks but thankfully abandoned the project when the lyrics took a decidedly cheesy turn for the worse.
I ended up doing a comic book. I read enough of them as a kid to know the genre, the problem is my drawing skills are limited at best. But I plugged on ( I had to, I had waited until four days prior to the due date to get started). Let me make it clear that every other assignment I completed during undergrad was written in a very adult and academic style. If anyone wants proof I can send them a copy of my paper The Warren Court: Baker v. Carr and Reapportionment (Snooze!)
I will say that this was a very demanding project. I didn’t realize this until I was a couple of pages into it. It gave me great respect for graphic artists (the real ones) and cartoonists.
