Bread’s Song, the Sound Enhanced Graphic Novel out with Better Magazine!

Better Magazine really did an amazing job with the layout and coding of my piece. When you run your mouse over the images they talk to you! I did the pictures and voiced the narrator, my husband helped me with the sound and voiced a couple of the characters. My friends helped with some of the voices and sound effects. It was a really fun project, and it came out kind of insane, in a way that I am very happy with.
