Jaguar, page sixteen

...and another new page!

I'm still pretty determined to move at my own pace with these, but I'm not sure if that pacing is working. Still, plodding on!

Jaguar, page fifteen

New page for Jaguar.

That's the Torpoint ferry in panel one. I have to sit on that every time I want to go into the 21st century (England).

Jaguar is also web-published here JAGUAR!

Jaguar, page fourteen

Page 14, and a journey continues. For those of a south western bent, that's Plymouth railway station we're pulling into!

Jaguar, page thirteen

New page of Jaguar.

Pacing is important to me in this. If a journey or conversation is started, it should take time. I don't want teleporting between scenes if I can help it.

I'm becoming aware that I'm the only one who thinks this however...

Jaguar, page twelve

Jaguar continues, and we start a journey.

The major writing, framing and pacing influences on me whilst working on Jaguar were European New Wave Cinema of the 1950s and 1960s, and this journey is one example of that I guess. There's a scene in Godard's Breathless when Michel and Patricia are having a conversation whilst driving around Paris. The background's constantly shifting and doesn't have the same continuity as the conversation itself. It shifts around, goes backwards and forwards, and I think it's because Godard is trying to get over a feeling of the fluid ebb and flow of a real chat. Bits we remember are out of order. We go back to things we said earlier. We jump ahead.

This attempt to get some sort of feel of a real conversation is really what I'm experimenting with here, just to see if I can do it, and to see if it'll work.
