First Look at ‘The Battle of Wakefield Exhibition’

Wakefield Museum 01
The Battle of Wakefield Exhibition at Wakefield Museum opened today and even with my critical eye, I must admit, the comic strip looks good. The pencil line and digital colouring has held up to being enlarged and the speech bubbles are crisp and easy to read. I like what the design team have done on the outside too, using the colouring flats as silhouettes to illustrate the text based pieces. This is something I hadn’t thought of but boy, it works well.
As always, it’s difficult to get a good photo, museum lighting is 40Watts of archival darkness at the best of times. Will try to remedy that in the next few weeks and get some nice photos made.
