|摘要:||本論文論述筆者的五本圖文書創作及相關研究爬梳。日常感知、懷舊記憶、溫暖情 感等,一直是筆者創作的主軸。作品《丁點喃喃》將筆者日常筆記中的感知隨筆進行第 二次圖文創作;《舊電視》是對家中汰換的古董電視機所衍生的懷舊之情;《老山》記錄 著外公的一日生活;《鬆脫的書頁》為筆者首次在題材上以隱喻包裹意念,在手法上嘗 試運鏡與連續動作等手法的創作;《石頭們搭乘邊境巴士去旅行》則是由《鬆脫的書頁》 的草稿延伸發展的小品,這本書也是這系列創作的總結。
在形式上,透過書籍的形式,作品便具有紀錄、閱讀、收藏、展示、販售等特性, 也能夠以很親近的方式向觀者傳達創作者的意念,並與觀者產生連結。其中筆者以各種 不同的圖文敘事與編排手法來創作每一本圖文書,橫跨多種圖文書類型,藉由撰寫論文 的機會,一併釐清圖文書範疇的五種類型:插畫、繪本、漫畫、圖像小說和 Zine。分別 透過定義、圖文敘事手法、相關作品回顧,和對筆者創作的影響,進行上述五種類型的 異同比較。然而這些類別之間存在著相互的影響、參照、衍伸、重疊,抑或顛覆,因此 有些作品可能同時兼具多種類別的特性,以至於在分類上不易進行絕對單一的歸類。但 是經由釐清,筆者企盼能夠協助創作者與讀者,得以用更豐富的視角來創作、分析和閱 讀圖文書。
論文以個人創作的其中一本圖文書之書名「鬆脫的書頁:探索圖文書創作 Loosing Pages: Investigation of the Picture Book Creation」為主標題的緣由是,在整理的過程中, 除了慢慢釐清不同圖文書門類的定義、了解其相互的影響,也發現圖文書不論在內容、 形式、或概念上,都不斷地變革演進、推陳出新、持續鬆動再生,以至於提供了創作者 相當大的發展空間與可能性。|
The author creates five picture books and related materials, and present them in this thesis. Three essential elements are the core part of this work, including everyday perception, nostalgic memories and warm feelings. In the “Din Point Murmur”, my daily notebook is transformed into a picture book. The “Old Television” is based on my old memories of an antique TV set in my home. While “Old Mountain” record the daily life of my grandfather. “Loosing Pages” use novel methods by the author, including metaphors for real meaning of the topic, employ an approach of mirror-like and continuous action. For the“Stones Travel with Border Bus”is an extension of the “Loosing pages”with further development, this book also is a summary of all these five picture books. Through various categories of picture book narrative technique and choreography to create every book, this work presents different characteristics of record, reading, collection, display and selling. They also closely convey the author’s concept to the readers, and have a link with them. In this thesis, the author clarifies all five categories of picture book, including illustration, picture book, comic book, graphic novel and Zine. By using definition, graphic narrative, reviewing related works as well as impact on the creation of the author, the five categories of picture book s are compared. In fact, this classification is not absolute. There may exist mutual influence, reference, extension, overlap or subversive. Some works combine several categories of properties. But through clarification, the author intend to be able to assist creators and readers to use a richer perspective to create, analysis and reading picture books. The author employ one of the works "Loosing Pages: Investigation of the Picture Book Creation” as the title of this thesis. The reason is that during the procedure of this work, besides clarifying definition of various categories of picture books, understanding mutual influence, it is found that picture books, in terms of content, style and concept, are constantly changing, innovating and having continuous loose/regeneration. Therefore, it provides a creator considerable room of development and possibilities.
