For my creative assignment I will be making a new cover for the novel Voyage in the Dark.

I will be drawing this piece. The scene I will be using from the novel will be when Anna

looks in the mirror and sees Mr. Jefferies in the reflection. In my drawing the main object

will be a large mirror in the middle of the page. I want to emphasis Anna’s perspective of

herself. Anna is always contemplating who she is. I feel that the main theme of this novel

revolves around how Anna perceives herself through others. A mirror reflects who you are

but for Anna it is also about how she finds others see her. To add onto this idea, Anna

seeing herself in the mirror can reflect her inner sadness. Also I will be working with

mainly dark colours because Anna always describes things in London as dark and lonely.

The last object will be a clock.  Clocks are important because it is repeated several times in

the novel. I feel as if clocks represent Anna’s view on her life. When she looks at clocks,

she is always hoping that maybe one day she will feel better and be placed in a better

situation.  Clocks can also represent her life expectancy. By this I don’t mean she’s going

to die, I mean she is always looking at the clock wondering when her suffering will end.

  1. This sounds great! Really interesting. Why is it formatted like this? Always double check formatting of posts if you copy/paste from Word.
