An Expriment On Wednesday 9th of Febuary a group of 16 students got together in the MA Communication Design studio with the purpose of telling stories with pictures or pictures and words. Why? To see what would happen! I had already run a similar experiment to produce and publish a book in 40 seconds and I wanted to see what could be done in the slightly less frantic time of 2 hours. I insisted that there had to some kind of drawing and a story and beyond that the participants were given a free reign. For those in need of a little inspiration I suggested the title ‘There is no such thing as a free lunch’ and this resulted in a lot of delicious food based stories. Those who went there own way choose a incredibly diverse range of topics, from dogs in space to strange encounter in an underground station. The range of styles is equally astounding from classic comic strips right through to experimental abstract approaches reflecting our range of professional, educational and cultural backgrounds. Creating graphic stories can be as frustrating and as it is rewarding but by concentrating on working within the time limit rather than on producing polished work the atmosphere seemed to be relaxed and humming with productivity But why the soup? Well, just as there is no such thing as a free lunch, there is no such thing as a free story so I exchanged one for the other. The recipe can be found on the back cover if you want to try and replicate the experience. I would like to thank everyone who took part; I literally couldn’t have done it without them.
