Make your story imaginative and creative and think about the descriptive language techniques you can use (e.g. using your senses, adjectives and similes).

Pop art is the use of a single image that has been used multiple times, with the same colours being used, but in different areas of the picture.
Choose a object to draw in each of the boxes (these can be something simple like an apple, or more complicated like a face) you can choose any object.
Once you have drawn the same image in each box, use a colour to colour in a piece of the image, then in the next box use the same colour to colour in a different part of the image.
The end result should be very vibrant and interesting to look at, I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
