I have always using picturing myself in my learning process. When I was 17 year I made an 100 pages study about the Nez Percé - indians lifestyle and history, as a special project. I never learned more about history, english and how to rule a project. But my degree became worse.
Now I working with this type of project in schools in regular term. We are a team who learn classes about swedish history with making comics, theater, dance and music.
After that we ending this school project with making a big role play, there the kids are dressed with clothes from that time and acting like historical persons.
And making a comic magazine from their historical comics.
To making comics you don´t need to be a very skill artist. In the comic picture above, it´s not really very technical exellent, but it´s the comic which made most impact on me.
