Maus Reflection Post

Tracing helped me to view the concepts that we have been talking about in class. There was something different about actually tracing the pages as opposed to observing them passively. Going through the process of shading and sketching made me notice which parts of the process took the most time, and which panels were more detailed as opposed to the ones that seemed to take less time to trace.

I chose the pages that I did because I wanted to highlight the details in either body language and background or facial expression. I chose to trace p. 109 from Volume I and p. 25 from Volume II. After having read the books and having thought about which aspects stuck with me I chose pages that I thought best illustrated the concepts that I wanted to talk about. I chose to talk about:

Idea #1: Facial Expression

Idea #2: Character Design

Idea#3:  Page Layout
