I thought about focusing on one visual theme running throughout all the illustrations. Looking at the stories there was a few themes these they have in common, such as dreams, religion and sea.
I chose sea imagery because it is a beautiful setting used alot as a metaphor for love. There are many objects/ scenes found at the sea with connotations to love. For example, in the ‘The trick’ the reader allurdes sadly not having their lover with them anymore, so I chose a lighthouse usually associated with searching and human desire.
To help me composite my ideas, I used images to collage rough ideas.
