Comics are about storytelling with images in sequence, which is translated traditionally in rows of images that are read side by side, one after the other. North Star Fading by British cartoonist and illustrator Karrie Fransman shows that you can also tell stories by embedding your images in one another, in a never-ending zoom. More than in a linear narration, this framework enables her to focus her reader’s attention to the pressing point she’s making.
North Star Fading was created for PostitiveNegatives, a producer of content about current social and human rights issues. Since 2012 they have created animations, podcasts, illustration and also comics, and have gained recognition and awards from numerous international instances. Other comics include impressive work by Gabi Froden, Rob Davis, Asia Alfasi, and more..
