"Welcome to the Modern School. There are no buildings, no diplomas, no teachers. Here we are perpetual students, and there is only one lesson. The cost of attendance could be your life; the reward for attendance could be yourself. We are not training future bankers, lawyers, doctors; we are training soldiers, for a war fought in spaces where ideas drop like atom bombs."
"Welcome to the Modern School. Welcome to the world."
I'm happy to report that I've recently begun work with a phenomenal artist and co-creator on a concept I came up with some time ago, "The Modern School". The artist is Camila Brugnoli, an incredibly talented woman living in Argentina, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the discussions we've been having and the work we've been doing. Talking to her completely changed the pacing, layout and length of the story I initially set out to tell, and undoubtedly for the better. So far we've got a page essentially completed (all but colored) and work continues apace.
It's a real thrill to collaborate, to imagine something and then see it made real, and so much better than you could ever have dreamed it. Double benefit, having lived in Buenos Aires for a while, it feels spectacular to communicate in castellano again. Posted Image
Anyway, I thought I'd post a few images and progress reports and updates and what not here, just because I can't contain my excitement.
Here's an early sketch of an earlier draft of the script. Camila, even at this stage, was changing elements for better visual impact, which then caused me to go back and change things FURTHER, and so forth and so on, but the basic design of the page remains the same. I'll post more -including a fully done B&W page - as we go!
