I'm having the same problem Matt is having. I need to try and come up with more of a narrative theme for my animal idea. I really want to stick with the interesting fact things, but as long as I am doing something with animals I'll be happy. I have all the backgrounds I want, as well as the facts. Below are the backgrounds I will use for an elephant and a giraffe...
If anyone has any suggestions (again) I'd love them.
Here are some of the facts I found. I don't know if I want to make it a comical zine or a more serious one... I also do not know exactly how many animals I am going to use at this moment. Somewhere around 6 - 8 I'm thinking.
Anteaters prefer termites to ants.
Giraffes have no vocal cords.
All elephants walk on tip-toe.
A hippo can run faster than a man.
Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
Camels have 3 eyelids.
There's something about my idea I don't really like anymore. It's probably because there needs to be a narrative. It's kind of frustrating. I thought I knew what I wanted to do (and by now I SHOULD know), but, the more I think and plan, the more I don't like my idea. Maybe I need better facts? I guess we will see what happens.
