I made some pictures for a wisdom tale called A Flock Of Birds from India. This is one of the pictures. The tale goes like this. There was a flock of quail living in a forest. One day a hunter showed up and captured some quail in a net to sell at the market. The remaining quail went to go see the old wise quail. The old wise quail said that they needed to work together. The hunter threw the net over the quail, but this time all the quail beat their wings as one and lifted the net away.
The next day the hunter came back and threw a net over the quail. The quail beat their wings as one, but one quail accidentally bumped into another one and started a fight. The quail could not lift the net and the hunter took them to market. The hunter laughed and said, “United they escape, divided they’re dinner.” MORAL: Work together for the better of all.
I did my wisdom tale in Comic Life 2 about the story of A Flock of Birds. I haven’t used Comic Life in a very long time so it was very fun working with it. I remembered all the keys, how to get different themes, and how to create my own boxes and design my own thing. I thought it was very cool working with Comic Life and getting to see the different ways to tell a story but in a comic version. I really did enjoy using Comic Life and I hope we get to use it again!
The moral of my story was talking about how teamwork is key because there was a flock of birds who were getting captured by a hunter and once they got captured in a huge net, they used teamwork to escape. Teamwork is key, United we stand, Divided we fall.
For my project on Comic Life, I chose The Smuggler. The Smuggler is about a smuggler who when trying to cross a border, is stopped by a border control officer. The border control officer then demanded to search the smuggler’s donkey. He does so, but finds nothing. This happens for ten years, and even thought the border control officer know that the juggler is smuggling something, he can’t prove it. In ten years, when the border control officer is retired, he sees the smuggler in the market, and asks him what he was smuggling. The smuggler says that he was smuggling donkeys. The moral of the story is to not overlook the obvious, and to not judge a book by it’s cover.
