Illustration Friday: "Reverse"


The topic this week on Illustration Friday is "Reverse". I couldn't pass up this one because on page 7 of my mini-comic, Pest Control, I pull a "reversal" of sorts.

We all know that books, and comics (unless it's manga) read from left to right, but in panels 3-5 I make the page read right to left. To help the reader know what just happened I use the sound effect to lead the reader through the R to L transition. I think it works.

A small disclaimer: There WILL BE words on the page. This is still a work in progress, so that's why it's "silent" right now. But, hopefully it still works without the words. Enjoy.
