For my visual analysis I chose loneliness as the theme to portray and I chose to portray it in a drawing. In my visual I wanted to show that the loneliest character in the book, in my opinion, is Boo Radley. I chose him because he is stuck in his house all the time and people keep making up rumors about him so I imagine that if I was in his situation I would be very lonely.
I decided that I wanted my visual to have a sad or angry look because when someone is alone they are usually either sad or angry. I think Boo Radley looking through the window shutters represents him trying to reach out and not be so lonely and seeing other people. I also chose to darken out his eyes and around his face to represent how only a small group of people truly know what he looks like and people just make assumptions from rumors that are spread. His eyes are the most important part of the image because they symbolize loneliness, anger, fear, and rumors, that is why I put them in the center of the picture and made them darker than the rest of it. Jem said, “Miss Stephanie Crawford said she woke up in the middle of the night one time and saw him looking straight through the window at her…said his head was like a skull lookin’ at her” (12-13).
