My project Wulf is a digital artistic rendering of an Old English Poem “Wulf and Eadwacer”. My digital comic depicts the story of a woman who is in love with a man, Wulf, who is forced to leave their village. The woman describes her sorrow at being separated from her lover and being forcefully taken by another man. I was taken with this poem and wanted to give my own personal interpretation of it through my favorite storytelling medium, comics.
The comic is entirely in black and white to portray the contrast of the woman’s life with Wulf and her life with Eadwacer. Most of the artistic choices made were made with the intention of portraying the true and deep sorrow and emotion of the unnamed woman.
