My Experiences in creating “The History of Medicine”

By Jessie Zhao

My experiences in creating the comic book “The History of Medicine” were very interesting. I began by trying to think of a good topic. I then realized that I was interested in both history and medicine, so I naturally studied the history of medicine. I already knew some information, but I still had to search things up online and visit the library to borrow books. Fortunately, there are many sources on this subject.

After gathering information, I had to begin drawing. This involved first planning the panels, and then deciding what to put in them. Since I couldn’t make the comic book too long, I also had to judge how significant something was. After drawing and writing down everything, I had to color the panels and trace everything, including the borders and words. This was probably the most time-consuming part.

However, in the end it was all worth it. I had created a great comic book, and could show my work to thousands of people online. I recommend this competition to anyone who likes art, history, and is willing to spend a lot of time working on this. It’s also a great chance to show your work to others.

Who knows, you might even become famous!
