Workshop Eight - When You Tell A Story...

Both - Tom Gauld & Simone Lia

This book is a good example of sequential imagary with little or no words. The illustrations are so rich of information that you understand what's going on clearly.

The Red Tree - Shaun Tan

Even though Tan's books have text the main part of each double spread is the illustrations which are very beautifully done.

The Peacock Party - Alan Aldridge
This book shows how you can use the small traits of animals and turn them into characters. I want to make my Selkie/seal man a character like this.

The Great Selkie of Sule Skerry

1. The Story
The story is about a mother worrying about who the father of her son is and he comes to her in the night and tells her that he is a Selkie - A Man-Seal and that their son is also one too and he will be taking him back to the sea with him but tells her that she will meet a handsome, strong hunter and won't be alone though the first time the hunter makes a catch it will be the Selkie and their son.

3. This story would be part of an ongoing collection of 'Nautical Tails'

One: Selkie Head explaining (Night Time)
Two: Selkie and Son leaving
Three: Returning to the sea
Four: Hunter
Five: Dead Selkie
