Story and Illustration
What is a story, what does story mean?
"It (a story) means like you tell somebody what happened." -Nora
Our interest in stories along with our investment in exploring rats has invited and inspired the idea of creating a story about our (beloved) rats. Working toward this aim, we have been focusing on elements of books and stories and illustration is integral to creating a story book. We set up our low table with a variety of books to highlight a variety of illustration styles, techniques, and materials used to make the image.
"They (illustrators) draw the pictures. You can illustrate with collaging." -Lochie
"First I want to color it in and then layer it with a bunch of colors." -Sylvie
