Intermediate sketch page for my graphic novel "Gaijin-American Prisoner of War"- a tale about a young man, Koji, and his mom, Adeline, as they are illegally interned along with over 100,000 other Japanese Americans during WWII. The image here shows Koji's reaction to the reality of the camp- over crowding, living in horse stalls, poor food and no privacy in the latrines etc. (among all the other obvious slights against the internees- the least of which being their loss of freedom because of their race). For some reason the designers of the camp latrines decided that Japanese Americans didn't need partitions in between each toilet, pencil 2009.
