Invisible Emotion: Jake Bailey

Page from “I Saw It” by Keiji Nakazawa

The example I used for line if from “I Saw It” by Keiji Nakazawa and the picture I am referencing is of the people right after the bomb hits. The lines in this that relate to McClouds examples are the ones used to create the melting people as they still show human shapes but can invoke so much anger, fear, and overall negative feelings. The lines seem soft as it is of people meting but are cold and sour for the real reason why they seem like that. The emotion I feel from seeing these images is pure sadness because this is a first hand drawn experience of probably one of the most horrific events in human history and to see it depicted like that with the melting lines is hard to see.

Page Family from City: A Narrative Portfolio by Will Eisner

The example I used for the Show and Tell is from City: A Narrative Portfolio by Will Eisner specifically the section titled Family. This example is interdependent because it follows the idea that words or pictures alone doesn’t make the page make sense but all together is when everything just works.Just the picture you can try and understand it but once you add the words seen in the left margin you can use those to make more sense of the drawing and what it means. The man and the woman normally would be seen as just that but with the words and the title you can understand that they are family, same with everyone else in the drawing,
