The Song and Dance Man

Literary and Visual Elements
The visual elements on their own do an amazing job at giving the reader a fun and loving feeling. One picture in particular which depicts the grandfather telling a joke and laughing at his own joke is illustrated perfectly. The expression of the grandfather is so detailed that you can almost hear his laughter. The outburst of color behind him along with the confetti pieces gives a sense of fun and movement to the reader letting them really indulge in the story.
Artistic Style and Media
The artistic media that is used is beautiful colored pencil. This contributes by giving a simplistic and free feeling to the pictures. It also allows a lot of depth to the pictures through shading and color combining to create things you couldn't in other artistic styles.
