This image is about my learning journey. It is a combination of greylead drawing, watercolour and photoshop. I am exploring multi-literacy within my masters thesis and this is part of that exploration. Visual literacy is explored as a partner to text literacy in the emergent 21st century literacy practices. This is about dialogue and relationships and the story flows through multiple pathways as the viewer is earthed in the interconnected understandings at the base and then flows into the orange symbolising creativity and the blue symbolising communication. The window shows the sky which as Shaun Tan points out is about possibilities and new literacies that will grow beyond what can be seen on the page. This story is about personal exploration and invites you to join the conversation. Word and image are interwoven and the angel symbolises the insights that come when you start to explore your own learning journey.
