Nora Murphy

Instructor

Nora is a comic artist invested in storytelling through the medium of sequential art. Art is a powerful tool of self-expression that allows an individual to create meaning through their work, regardless of whether it is to be seen by others or made for the self. Comics allow for a story-driven approach to art with many unique characteristics that enhance the medium to tell powerful and unique stories.

All mediums offer individual creative benefits, comics include many of the benefits of drawing and writing but it is in the unique strengths of comics, through readability, panel layouts and transitions, as well as the comic perspective of writing. Different art mediums speak to different people and for Nora, finding comics at a young age inspired her interest in comic storytelling, which led to her wanting to create her own.
