what can a graphic novel be?
For the Final Major Project and Thesis of the MA Illustration & Visual Media Course at the London College of Communication, my field of study was based on the exploration of the graphic novel form and a considered liberation of its format from a simple printed book. Picking up the stories by James Herriot which I had read as a child, I decided to adapt his first autobiographical book All Creatures Great and Small, into a graphic narrative that is not limited to a book, but can be 'read' in a unique way.
A currently ongoing project, I have decided to use the format of an illustrated weekly newspaper to depict his stories. Naming it 'The Illustrated Tails of Darrowby' I plan to adapt a small section of the selected book in every subsequent issue of the hypothetical publication.
