doublet


lots of pointing
 Late post because blogger's been down for two days. This is strange; I'm about halfway through the alphabet, so I figured now would be a good time for another etymological term. I don't know about the execution: even though I lengthened the panels, it's still crammed with too many words, and the visuals don't flow (particularly panel 5). I'm playing with the art; I found an old sepia-toned ink set I had some years ago, so that's why the odd coloring. If I dig it, I'll keep going.

Panels 3 & 4 obviously borrow from historical pieces of art. The first is a depiction of the Vikings invasion of England; unfortunately, I've never seen the original so I don't know the title or any of that other good citation stuff. The second is a small fraction of the Bayeux tapestry, which depicts the Norman invasion, and, according to Scott McCloud, is comics!
