I know you said in the lecture that you thought just a brick wall in the background wasn't enough but I really think it becomes part of the story. Just the two of them against a cold, unfeeling world. Nothing but loneliness and the two of them. I agree that it needs more views points but I would really like to see the whole thing with text. Looks so interesting.

She planned this as a wordless picturebook. It works on many levels, but I worry that it is too quiet to hold the continued interest of a child. It would have been great if she had developed it more~

I'm having a lot of trouble deciding what goes on each page. I know what elements I need for the story to be told but I don't know if I should make it very detailed or large bold characters and minimal background and I have kind of come to a stop as I can't do my storyboard without deciding. Any help most welcome : )
