Sugar Group pages

3 pages produced in collaboration with members of the Sugar Group (older diabetic Afro-Caribbean women) who meet at the Kath Locke Centre in Moss Side. As part of the larger Community comics project, I worked with these ladies on this strip. All the speech is taken directly from recorded conversations we had. From the transcription we chose the most important dialogue, which I then laid out into speech bubbles. The group then decided both what should be seen in each panel, and how they themselves wanted to be depicted - having seen the childrens work in which they depict themselves as animal characters (partly my influence) the group decided to be roses, a lily, a hummingbird and a butterfly.
The results of the whole project, including all the comics and drawings produced by the youth groups, will soon be available as a PDF.
