A Look at Hope Larson's A Wrinkle in Time

Posted by Alison Hallett on Thu, Aug 26, 2010 at 4:56 PM

Look, it's Meg!


Larson writes:

I’m sure you have a different idea of how Meg should look. This is how she looks to me, but in fact, I had to rethink my own idea of Meg when I worked out her design. The image of her that was stuck my mind from childhood included her long braids, which were cut off before the events of A Wrinkle in Time, and neglected the bruise on her face. Maybe I forgot about the bruise because Madeline L’Engle doesn’t mention it every time she describes Meg’s appearance—which she doesn’t spend much time doing after the first chapter—but you can’t forget about it when it’s there in every panel. It’s interesting which details rise to the foreground when you make the transition from words to pictures.
