    Incredible. Really excited to watch AD develop…

  5. Steve O'Keefe

    Nice detail. Are you working off of arial photographs? Scale and architecture look very accurate.

    Thanks, Heidi. I’m hard at work on part II of the prologue, which will be up next week. Thanks for plugging the project!

    I’m using a lot of photographic reference for this project — especially for the prologue. About half the images are directly from photos, while the others use photos as a resource, but the angle (and many details) come out of my head.

    The contraflow in the first panel is terrific. Made me puzzle over the highway sign facing the wrong direction until I remembered… Very nice.

    (Antigravity’s LJ sent me here. Looking forward to reading more.)

    That’s cool. I wonder if any of you jerkoffs are really from New Orleans. If not, you clearly don’t know what’s going on.

    Do you think there is a critical need for a definition of the experience of reading graphic novels with interactive multimedia web links? Because, reading A.D: New Orleans after the Deluge on the Internet with interactive multimedia web links gave an experience that was not like a book and it certainly was not like a magazine. Can you think of a resolution to request the experience of reading the A.D: New Orleans after the Deluge, on the Internet?
