PDF Red A Haida Manga Ebook
Initially, the form appears to be a loose blurring of the style and color scheme of traditional Haida art and the exaggerated illustrations typical of manga, or Japanese comics. The book also resembles a Western comic in that it is a story told through a combination of words and pictures, arranged at least loosely into a series of images that can be read left to right across the page to create a narrative arc. While the inspiration of both Haida art and manga is evident in Red , this new genre does not, at first glance, seem to be a distinct entity. Red is not simply a mash-up of popular genres; rather, it is the work of a traditionally trained Haida artist who is respectful of the culture and artistic traditions out of which he has emerged. Through its content as well as its form, Red insists upon the importance of balance in both art and life, a belief that is central to Haida culture. According to Bill Holm, one of the distinguishing characteristics of Haida art is that its primary colors are black, red, and either green, blue, or blue-green In Red , Yahgulanaas follows this traditional definition of the formline while expanding upon it in significant ways: it also separates the individual panels that make up the comic.
