BA (Hons) Comic & Concept Art student, Lorna Dinning, has won a bronze award in ClipStudio.net’s International Comic/Manga School Contest 2020 (Comic Category) for Mourning Crow, a story that follows a bereaved young man to a graveside.
The competition brief was to create a comic around the theme of ‘promise’. A panel of industry professionals and sponsors selected Lorna’s work from over 750 illustrations, submitted by students from 825 colleges and universities from across 69 countries and regions.
The ClipStudio.net judging panel said of Lorna’s entry:
“The beautiful and yet moving presentation intensifies the sadness of a man talking to himself in front of the cemetery, recalling a moment with his dead loved one. It's simple, but it speaks more than words alone.
“We found the colour palette, use of line work and timeless nature of the act of mourning a lost loved one to be engaging and appealing.”
