Here are a few panels from an 11 panel story for my Sequential Narrative class. It's my interpretation of the Japanese myth "Kintaro" or Golden Boy. None of the text was integrated into the panels, I set the whole thing up like a poster with the story playing out on the left hand side of the page, but these are how the illustrations look in the final product. The story is about a mountain ogress that gets impregnated by a clap of lightning sent from a Dragon. She raises the boy in the forest and finds out he possesses incredible strength. As a young man he clears the forest of all monsters and brings peace to the land. Reminds me of myself.
