Troubled Youngsters Turn to the Internet

I read this interesting article entitled "Troubled Youngsters Turn to the Internet" by Robert Dex, for The Scotsman, 18th March 2010. Which is kind of related to what I am trying to achieve with my Michty Morag project.

Merlin's Tale

I came across this a while back at the BBC website, it is the tale of young Merlin as illustrated by a favourite illustrator of mine, Rex Crowle. It is a very atmospheric piece, written by Catherine Fisher & dramatically read by Richard Elfyn.

If I could get as near to this kind of thing with my story of Michty Morag then I'd be more than "chuffed".

The BBC has a website dedicated to British myths. Among the features are a flash game and various stories, including a tale of young Merlin illustrated byRex Crowle.

Interactive Comic

I love this interactive comic, commissioned by Elisava School of Design, created by Soon in Tokyo and illustrated by Serge Seidlitz for "i am not an artist" site. I have put in links so there is no excuse for having a look.

As part of my Michty Morag project I am tempted to attempt an interactive comic as opposed to the planned animation. I like the way the above comic flows & the way they have the music/audio reacting to the frames.
