Chapter 4 conclusion

Chapter_4_6

With these panels chapter four comes to a close, thanks to those who’ve been following this. I’m going back to chapter one to work chronologically from here, and in the process I will find a way to present the pages in a more standard web comic format instead of the slide show.

ComicPress is a nice template for doing this, I just have to figure out how to incorporate it into the existing site.

Story update – 2 more pages.

Chapter_4_4

Click on the image to access the slidehow.

I’m getting close to having the material needed for the book proposal, three more pages to go!

A note to younger readers and those easily offended; there is no censorship in this story. The following pages feature some swearing, which in any case isn’t half as offensive as the treatment Jorge received from his jailers.

Sketchup for comics

Google’s 3D modeling application Sketchup is what a good tool should be: Intuitive to learn, easy to use and best of all; free!

I’ve found Sketchup to be a huge help in imagining environments and as a guide for drawing. In the example of the visiting hall of Canaleta prison, I had Jorge describe the place for me. From his information I gleaned the approximate dimensions, the open air nature of the room with the chain link fence screens and the benches.

In under an hour I had the room built in Sketchup, using readymade elements such as the chain link and benches from the Sketchup “warehouse“, a user generated depository of items you can download. No sense in building a bench if 3 other people have already done it.

The model of  the visiting hall

The purpose of using this tool is not so much the tracing, but the great help in determining “camera angles” when an environment’s relation to the subjects is important. (more…)

Cover

cover_red

This is a mockup of the cover for the graphic novel. Who knows if it’ll end up being the published version, but I’ve had this idea for some time of featuring two arms, signifying Jorge’s loss but also a universal gesture of seeking help, rescue. It also functions as a P.O.V (point of view) as I naturally used my own arms as reference.

While observing my arms I felt so grateful for having them, these precious appendages we all use so much without realizing it. I admire Jorge tremendously for his ability to do as much as he does without them.

Spanish version of Happy at 90 Miles

We’re pleased to announce that the Spanish version of this blog is now up and running.

The address is happya90millas.com and can be accessed through the ESPAÑOL tab on the top of this page.

The issues of human rights and migration relating to Cuba is something that interests Spanish speakers in many countries and we’re happy to be able to provide information about Jorge’s story to this audience.
