Sometimes in the City
There is no dialogue and no traditional storyline. Each chapter is a full single page of illustration, divided into between 3 and 9 frames, telling a story of city life, drawn as if snapped by a camera in sequence from a fixed position. These stories are moments, vignettes just seconds in length. The illustrations and accompanying text descriptions evoke a wide range of emotions and experiences, and constitute a fresh, unconventional comic book reading experience.
