Tracing Persepolis Revision

Here is my revised Tracing Persepolis project. I originally divided my project into two parts, tracing one and tracing two. For my revisions, I found three aspects the were similar and different for each page and divided my project based on that. My revised project is better because it has more commentary on the similarities and differences between the pages.

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 PersepolisI 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.
