Finding the Footprints of Life
Created for a course about Comics & Medicine in the Biomedical Communications Program, this comic book takes a complex scientific topic and translates it into a visual story. The story is based on my personal experience with the NASA AMES Pavilion Lake Research Project. It details the classification of biosignatures, the importance of astrobiological research, and what kind of work is being done at Pavilion Lake.
Writing the Narrative
The script for the comic was originally drafted in a separate document. Minimal research needed to be done since the narrative was based on my personal experience working on the Pavilion Lake Research Project. The text was partitioned and numbered based on the beat and rhythm of the narrative that I envisioned would flow across panels. These numbers served as a guide for where text would be assigned when designing the panel and illustration layout.
