“Certain it is the place still continues under the sway of some witching powerthat holds a spell over the minds of the good people…They are given to all kinds of marvelous beliefs; are subject to trances and visions, and frequently see strange sights and hear music and voices in the air. The whole neighborhood abounds with local tales, haunted spots, and twilight superstitions.” – Washington Irving
At night in Sleepy Hollow…it’s best to stay inside.
Happy trees, like these, groweverywhere in Sleepy Hollow.
Boo.A typical farmer’s scarecrow in Sleepy Hollow
Ichabod Crane – perhaps his arrival to Sleepy Hollow.An example of the mens’ clothing style. I love the color palette here. A definiteatmosphere is conveyed – chilly, windy, earth that has stopped living at the start of the fall season, townsfolk must protect themselves while outdoors…
An illustrator’s whimisical renderings of “Katrina” and“Brom Bones”. This style evokes comedy, physicality, anda cartoon-like energy, all necessary to portray the humor in this ghost story. I can just hear these characters’ voices from the way they are drawn.
Some cool-looking,creepy folks. PerhapsSleepy Hollow’stownspeople. Thepeople are nicelygrayed and weatheredfrom their town’sforboding atmosphere.Note the periodclothing.
Ichabod’s primitive and weathered classroom. I canjust hear the lively soundscape,provided by those students…
The triangle: Katrina,Ichy, and Brom at theHalloween party. Thisimage brings to mindthese people’s desires,wants, and needs, fromone another. Active,passionate. I love thebold color palette andthe use of light andshadow. Safety andnot. Love the teeth-likeshadow from the antlerson the chimney. I canhear the music, smellthe food…
This image completely captures our reading’s goal: Active storytelling! Like Brom here, let’s engage, frighten, and entertain. How will you use your bodies? Your voice?
Ichabod walkinghome…I love the bold color scheme whichmirrors the benefits of strong physical choices in our reading. How will you color your performance? Howwill you help evoke a similar atmosphereusing your voices and bodies?
This image embodies the atmosphere in the town. What’s behind you? Are yousafe? What happens when thesun goes down? Love the useof dark and light. Great facial expression.
The chase. How will we create the sounds and feel of this deadly ride?
This is a really cool, abstract illustration (artist unknown). To me, this imageevokes the horror in this ghost story. The image, too, has a forceful energy, sound, and physicality
