Layers: Eva Guillen

Page 164 from the graphic novel What It Is by Lynda Barry.

On the right I have an example of Layering from the graphic novel What It Is. I feel like this is a great example of typographic layers since the text is used to frame some of the images. Also the text is layered as a border and it creates a significant design aspect to the page itself. Then I feel like the way that the text was layered for the comic strip page was nicely formatted. I think this because the layering of text is important to tell the story, also so that the reader is not overwhelmed with everything on the page.

Page 27 from the Graphic Novel I Am My Own Stereotype The My Small Diary Collection by Delaine

On the leftt I have an example of layering from the graphic novel I Am My Own Stereotype The My Small Diary Collection by Delaine. I decided to choose this page as an example of the importance of layering. The images and text on this page were layered in a form that it is easier to read. A person naturally reads left to right, top to bottom. Which is why the comic is laid out so that we read it left to right, top to bottom. Then the text is layered so that it can be easily read around the images. This page is also from the another graphic novel that I want to read for the second half of the semester.
