Some People

My entry for the Guardian short graphic story competition.

I really enjoyed reading this and the way it flows couldn't be any better. The red to yellow is a sensual bit for me. Also the seat on the bus, that whole scene is really well laid out and easy to follow. Although the granddad brung back bad memories of an animation with a really good presentation.

Luke I'm trying to compile all those that entered but didn't win into a single self published volume, so I'm calling out to everyone that entered. So far there are 9 people on board with some absolutely great entries. if you want to join in either drop me a line, or maybe post a comment here:

Luke, I cannot express how much I love this beautiful strip. It was referenced on Reddit sometime ago, and I have not been able to forget it. It's so poignant. I truly hope that you create a book of similar work in the near future. Just wonderful!

Very nice and intriguing piece of work! One of my Sociology students just introduced me to "Some People," and I'd like your permission to link this page back to my course's homepage, and to open up the comic to discussion. Please get back to me and let me know your thoughts . . .
