National Archives, keeper of our country’s records for almost 100 years, wanted to take a key story of the Civil War, the voyage of the CSS Alabama, and make it appeal to tweens.
Timbuktoons was contacted to develop comic book styled illustrations for an interactive exhibit along with an exhibit teaser video.
We produced illustrations for an interactive display, a comic book and motion comic for the Discovering the Civil War exhibit.
The illustrations all correlated to specific archived documents chronicling the journey of the confederate “pirate” ship from construction to its final battle.
The illustrations were so well received that Archives commissioned two follow-up projects to be produced and sold along with their traveling exhibit: a 16-page comic book and accompanying motion graphic novel on DVD.
