Tracing Persepolis Assignment
This Tracing Persepolis project allowed me to see how graphic novels can enhance a reader’s experience. I had never read a graphic novel before and had some reservations. After reading Persepolis, I could definitely see how the illustrations in the novel helped my understanding of the overall work. In my project, I found it difficult to decide which pages I wanted to trace and what aspects I wanted to include. I tried to capture the characteristics of the page that stuck out to me, while still being able to connect to the other tracing. Another task I found challenging, was deciding how to divide the panels and arranging them on different pages. This was easier to do after I did my synthesis and reflection. Overall, this assignment was difficult, but it was interesting because I had never done anything like it.
