Group Study

i Aug 16, 2010 Comments Off by

Vichet is assigned to make a presentation with his classmates Sreymom, Sophy and Samnang.
His first try doesn’t go so well. He is embarrassed in front of the class, and Samnang teases him afterward.
A second presentation is due and this time the study group chooses their presenter via a random ‘lucky draw’. Again, it’s Vichet!  Is this really luck?
Can Vichet and his classmates work together, or is he due to embarrass himself again?  It takes a mock presentation and the help of his friends to make a difference.

This 16 page (Khmer language) comic was illustrated by Moeu Diyadaravuth and colored by Kim Phally.
Produced with Equal Access Cambodia in coordination with their ‘We Can Do It’ radio series.series.

Our Books staff joined Fulbright Scholar Jan Arabas to talk about comics history and do a simple ‘quick comic’ session. Managing Editor John Weeks and Artist Moeu Diyadarvuth were joined by independent publisher (and former Our Books Graphic Designer) Try Samphos.

The conversation is in English and (mostly) Khmer. At the end the students displayed and discussed their works. (Thanks to Rick for video!)
