This unit will include analysis and discussion of a wide range of visual narratives employed in visual images in the twentieth century. Like cinema, illustration has implemented visual narratives, via sequential imagery and established potent relationships between representations and text. Advertising, cartoons, picture story/books and comics communicate through image and word combinations. This unit will prioritise the structural and imaginative strategies significant to the development of visual narratives in singular (i.e. cartoons and advertisements) and sequential imagery (i.e. comics and picture story books). Analysis will focus on the development of figure/characters, locations/settings and visual narration via story boarding.


Story book mock-up suitable for submission to a publisher 70%, journal of notes, collected material, drafts and resources 30%.
