Graphic Novel – Emma Louise Pratt

Graphic Novel

The Process of Moving to New Media

I have always, always, always told stories. When I look back over the almost 30-years of my life that I have put images out into the world through exhibitions in galleries, they have always been supported by research, writing, and a story to tell.

Writing a graphic novel has been on my mind for seven of these years. The last 18 months finally gave me a story, the determination and the circumstances to start writing (and drawing).

They always say that the first novel is where you learn to write a novel. So this page is my mini-blog of reflections about the process of writing mine. Whether I conform to convention, find my own path, make things up as I go along, or make mistakes about the format, it’s all sure to happen.
