I'm taking a class about the graphic novel and one assignment was to create a graphic novel illustrating a short story. I chose Ray Bradbury's All Summer in a Day (one of my favorites). I spent somewhere around 40 hours working on it. I wish I had more time to work on it because I had ideas for way more than the 18ish pages there are. I'm not happy with some of my depictions of Margot, but I was on a tight time schedule.

VERY picture heavy - sorry about that! I hope y'all like it Smiley This is the first time I've seriously drawn anything more than a quick map to someones house in more than 5 years. Im really rusty!

Acrylic paint, watercolor, and ink. Glued to papers from hobby lobby and bound with a coptic stitch.

(these should go in order, I think... I hope I didn't miss one)


I'm no longer a moderator, but I will always love June 2005 - October 2008

WOW! I am speechless. The story sound familiar... Anyway, I love the layout, illustrations, and you put in just enough information to really engage the viewer. It's absolutely stunning and you have inspired me to try my hand at making a book.

Oh my gosh... I remember reading the same short story when I was in elementary! It was probably the most depressing thing to read for a 10 year old.

You did a great job capturing the mood with the bold colors. I think you did an amazing job! Cheesy

Wow, just wow. I've never really got into graphic novels, but yours convinced me how powerful they can be if done well and with the right story. I'm speechless, I can't put into words how much I enjoyed this and just how wonderfully your pictures give life and emotion to the story.

This is amazing. I am passionate about art and books, and you have combined them both so well.   Passionately illustrated books inspire me ... like this does!! Please, please do more!

I just about cried when I saw the topic name for this, then reading it brought tears to my eyes.

Absolutely kickass story choice (all hail Ray Bradbury!) and awesome graphic novelisationifying.
