Portfolio: Narrative




Panel 1 gives a view through the window of a slave cabin. This scene in Panel 2 occurs outside the cabin. Not only did the husband have to quickly leave (note he's clad only in his pants), but the door is ajar and he has to listen to what's occuring inside as well. The Spanish moss and coloration of the children reinforce his impotence and despair.
