war_frontAs I’m finishing up the final page of WAR, I thought it might be nice to show some of the progress so far.
With this project, I’ve attempted to use color as a vehicle to effect the thematic tone of the story. This could be done through rendering style or how it’s inked, but as an experiment I tried to accomplish this all through color. Even with the cover I tried to hold to this principal (LEFT). The monochromatic tones of the soldier communicate a certain tone based upon the readers experiences with that color and the subject matter.

Another note on the cover: The band across it slides off to reveal another aspect of the image, giving it dual meaning. With this project I tried to incorporate as many tricks as possible, either through storytelling, print production or page spreads. Let’s hope they communicate with the readers.
