Dear Friends
Raghu and Me have been trying desperately to grade your non-existent sketch books.
You guys are trying our generosity and it may not pay to push it too far.
We had extended the submission date from September 5 to September 8.
Raghu came to college today specifically to finish grading the sketchbooks.
As of September 9 morning, we have only 14 sketchbooks.
Since we are not the sort to continue begging for your submissions and since you do not care about our generosity, the final deadline is 9.30 a.m. tomorrow (September 10).
All those who do not submit their sketchbooks by tomorrow will see their grades plummeting heavily since the weightage for the sketch book aspect of assessments is high.
Good luck.

look through me - continued

work in progress...

Initially I was going to do the comic in separate strips, but I felt that I couldn't say enough about my character and decided to make it into a continuous narrative. For this, I have to alter the existing frames and the stuff I am putting up isn't in a sequence.

Hello Friends
So here it is: Your first important assignment deadline.
1. EACH STUDENT IS EXPECTED TO SUBMIT HIS/HER SKETCHBOOK OF 150 SKETCHES AT 9.30 A.M. ON SEPTEMBER 5. No late submissions will be entertained.
2. Every student has to come in with his/her 30 panel story for review and progress. I would like to see how the notions of narrative and plot has been now incorporated into your work and how it has been driven forward.
This is one way of doing a comic - having a very simple pedagogic narrative, to teach someone something. Even in this sense, this is a cool comic.
However, the way some of you are developing your work, your plot structure has to get deeper. This is what I want to help you with.
This Saturday your class will include a session by Ramesh on book formats and binding. This is important for your final product.
Take care
