The Black Sheep
"End of An Era" Narrative Story
Fall 2014 Intermediate Illustration Studio
This story, inspired by the prompt "end of an era," is about a lonely dragon whose request for “someone for dinner” is horribly misinterpreted by a village of sheep. Thankfully, an equally lonely black sheep volunteers himself to appease the dragon, and learns that he is not the newest menu item, but is instead the dragon’s newest dinner guest. Thus, the era of dragon-induced fear comes to an end. The visual style is influenced by Asian shadow play, an ancient form of storytelling which uses flat, articulated, paper cut-out shadow puppets.
