|A graphic* is a visual creation (two or three
dimensional) that uses color, symbols, and words to make a unified statement
The aim of a graphic experience is to help you synthesize and organize a number of details from divergent sources, connecting them and making them make sense. Sometimes you will be asked to do this as a prewriting activity, a means to an end. Sometimes, as in this assignment, the graphic is an end in itself (i.e. when the graphic is produced to convey an idea or make a unified statement without transforming it further into a piece of written work).
Assignment: Create an original and unique graphic which expresses a central idea or theme of Victor Villaseñor's novel, Macho! Remember: This is not an illustration of the book, but a symbolic representation.
