My static image is about 86th Street and the Summer of Love, by Colin C. Conway.
In the story, Mike is forced out of his gang and has to move on with his life no matter what.
For the background, I shaded it in light green as it the story is set during the Vietnam War. Because most of the fighting during that war was in the bushes which clearly portrays the setting. I used a y-intersection with the gang forcing Mike out. Mikes gang are facing him and walking backwards, making sure Mike does not follow them. The road and the tall buildings around them show that the gang lives in the cities of America. The 3 figures beside the buildings represent the kids the gang bet up. I used stick men because it suggests that they are very weak. For the colours of which the Mike wearing, I used yellow because it is a bright colour, and represents Mike personality. The gang are wearing black as black shows aggression, harmfulness, and repulsive. I used black as well for the colour of the quote because it is a gang member saying it. The “GONE” is used to contrast with the other words because it is the most important. It emphasises how much the gang doesn’t want Mike.
My quote is to enforce the idea of Mike being kicked out of the gang, then walking on with his life. “Doesn’t matter. We’re Family. You choose him over us. I vote you’re gone.”
