I had SO much fun with this unessay project! I don’t think I would believe myself it I told Freshman year, English major, Delaney that I would be doing a comic strip for a project Senior year. As discussed in my audio reflection, there were a few critical decisions I made within each panel of this comic strip whether purposeful or not. I say that because I used a free software/website called “Storyboard That” and there were some restrictions having to do with background, character design, and how much speech bubbles I could use. It was a fun challenge though, because it made me think just a tad further than I did going into the project. I got a chuckle out of a couple things that I couldn’t do: the Redcrosse Knight doesn’t have a redcross, and Duessa is in front of a cave….There’s a reason 😉 I hope you all enjoy this project, I know I did!
I answered it a little in my reflection, but the question “why does literature matter?”. In relation to my project, I felt as though literature matters because I can literally make a comic strip for a project! Simple as that. There are SO many ways to portray literature, there are basically no limitations if one thinks of something they can do…then do it! I discussed in my reflection that it is so important to realize that English & literature doesn’t have limitations to what people and things that can be done within that major and focus. Sure, it’s incredibly fun to do a traditional essay, but sometimes it worth spreading ones wings and doing an unessay every now and then.
