The other major component of this assignment is the "graphic" part. This means that I'm looking for a picture book feel. You should have pictures which help us to understand your narrator and your story. You may freehand draw your own images; you may cut and paste from magazines. Ultimately, though, your graphics need to support your text in some way. You may be direct--i.e. you bought a jacket so you show a picture of a jacket--or more abstract. For instance, you are in a bad mood so you show a picture of a stormy sky or a nuclear bomb exploding.
Play around with this, always remembering, however, that your job is to clearly describe in words and images. You will need to get colored construction paper which you may fold and make into books of between 10 and 15 pages in length in which you will present your writing and images.
