WIP: Jay returns home.
Drawing some key images from the period for the inside cover. Very interested in playing with the sequential properties of panel shapes here. Memories don’t have a single chronological narrative, they overlap and fall over each other somewhat, a shifting interrelationship. Hopefully, that comes across, even in this work in progress.
Thatcher and Khomeini are particularly important because it was during this period we saw a decisive shift toward the right politically, a rejection of socialist ideas in the West and the return of a fundamentalist Shia Islamic theocracy in Iran. These two movements have profoundly affected our lives in the decades since.
