Shreveport, LA, September 27, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Shreveport graphic artist Kevin Langley has created his first e-comic and
thanks to the web and Lulu.com, the online marketplace for digital content, it has been published.
Mr. Langley seized the opportunity to graphically recreate the tales of Brer Rabbit as an e-comic. An "e-comic," like "e-books", is a digital story which is viewed on a desktop or handheld computer.
“I am a video editor by trade so moving into 3-d art was a logical step to me. I have been creating 3-d art and graphics for several years now. I had been looking for a story for which I could create graphics. When I came across the Brer Rabbit tales, I thought what a great story to remake graphically. I loved it as a child, and now I love sharing it with my kids," says Mr. Langley.
Joel Chandler Harris first published Brer Rabbit over one-hundred years ago. The new stories remain faithful to the language, a Cajun/Creole type dialect, in which they were first rewritten. Harris wrote the tales of Brer Rabbit back in the 1880's.
Mr. Langley says: “Thanks to programs like Comic Life from apple and websites like Lulu.com I can create and publish my own stories.”
The Brer Rabbit Adventures #1 e-comic can be purchased for $2.50 at lulu.com.
