Choosing my Main IdeaGraphic Novel set in the early 1900’s focusing on a jazz singer of importance before their fame orrising to their fameExpanding on the Idea I will create a graphic novel or a comic book based on the early life of a jazz singer. It will be set in the early 1900’s in America, before the singers rise to fame, with a surreal fantastical twist in the storyline. I would like to include other jazz singers in the plot whether they are just introduced for a scene or deeper entangled in the story. Singers that come to mind are Nina Simone, Ethel Waters, Della Reese, Nat King Cole,. Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong. Obviously, because of the specific time it will be set in, I will have to look over the singers timelines and where they were in their career and how old they were before including them.
Ideas Generation, using research collected I have discovered that the majority of comic and graphic novel fans prefer hardback books to any other kind, and would be interested in my idea. Therefore I have decided to begin working with my black hardback sketchbook for the Graphic novel and with the general idea of Ella Fitzgerald’s rise to fame.
