It Seemed Like Nothing Could Go Wrong… Until….
Want to find out what really caused the grand Roman Empire to collapse? Read UIS’ new comic team’s latest release and discover the political ambitions, economic crises, and intricate balances between causes and effects, which drew the final curtain on one of the greatest empires the world has ever seen. The Grade 5 comic strip creators reveal the buildup to the final meltdown in a series of sequential drawings, each created by a single artist, yet striving to maintain unity and coherence in the overall design. The project saw the graphic artists discussing potential frames, then moving from gathering sketches and ideas, to drawing basic initial shapes, adding details, and going over the whole drawing in black ink. Evoking key ideas using sparse dialogue and lettering proved especially challenging. Stay tuned for the team’s next publication! They’re already brainstorming their latest area of exploration… Medieval Europe!
