Graphic Novels: Creation Of "The Bloody Man", Taylor Buckley Apr 2014

Graphic Novels: Creation Of "The Bloody Man", Taylor Buckley

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

I created a 26-page comic book, created to be a teaser trailer into a ongoing series. In my work, I sought to create rich, dynamic characters that functioned in a fantasy world grounded in reality. Special care was given to create logical costumes and destroy common tropes found in fantasy literature. I also worked to improve my technical skills in drawing the dynamic figure on motion, my understanding of color, and composition.

I broke my project down into two semesters. In the fall, I created the sketch work for the pages. This included small panel thumbnails, research (architectural, kinetic, photographic ...

Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities Conference Proceedings

This group responded to the challenge in part with a conceptual piece of creative writing–a “conference snapshot” written by the Unconference Research Initiative (URI). The initiative is a transdisciplinary group of scholars who build conference infrastructure to support conference content. Robots? Check. Karaoke? Check.

I took the photographs as the other poets

fell backwards into wild thyme, too worried

about appearing the tourist or ruining my clothes...

Traveling With Guitar, Debra Marquart

For you can travel with a screaming red rolling bag

and float unnoticed on conveyors, through terminals

or you can lug half a moose rack from Maine

to Minnesota, carry it like a broken wing through airports

A

few years ago, my friend Jordan, a writer and park ranger in northern California, decided to take a month long trip to Grand Teton National Park to do some research for a book. He had worked for the park service twenty years earlier in the Tetons, so the trip was part research, part reverie, and part mournful return to the rougher mountains of his youth. He was one of those people who competed in and won biathlons-the Olympic winter sport where you ski, then shoot with a rifle, then ski some more. He liked to claim you could drop ...

As we were packing up the Chevy with my things for col lege, Father handed me a checkbook from the Stock Growers Bank. It looked odd and official in his hands-legal, even-and nothing like the buckets of milk or the hay bales or any of the other things of agricultural that I usually saw him carrying around. Inside the plastic navy blue cover, tucked into the crease, was a stack of bound checks with my name on them...

Genre-Based Automated Writing Evaluation For L2 Research Writing: From Design To Evaluation And Enhancement., Elena Cotos

English Books

Research writing is craftsmanship central to the world of research and academia. It is the main means employed by scientific communities to disseminate and ratify knowledge, ‘inject[ing] light on dusty areas’ of academic enterprises (Barnett, 2005, p. 3). The journal articles, conference papers, grant proposals, theses, and dissertations, which are valued research-related genres, are viewed as major intellectual endeavors that earn their authors credentials and confer them academic status. For novice scholars such as graduate students, who are legitimate but peripheral participants in their scientific communities (Lave & Wenger, 1991), research writing is the first step towards accessing and actively ...
