Ding Dong the Witch is Dead, Drew Litton, 600X414 pixels, June 28 2012
This drawing by Drew Litton illustrates three fans jumping for joy after finding out that there will be a playoff system in NCAA division one football.
Drew Litton drew three fans jumping for joy while holding a newspaper that says “Finally College Football Playoff.” Next to them is grave that says “RIP BCS.” Next to the grave is a pile of dirt, making the viewers believe the grave was recently put into place. All of the fans are men and seem to have an excited expression on their faces. The background of the illustration includes a metal fence with symmetrical trees on the right and left edges of the cartoon. Based of the color of the sky in the background, the setting looks as though the sun is rising.
The men jumping for joy symbolizes the general publics view on the recent change in college football. The fact that these men are all jumping with excitement and seemly giving each other high fives, leads the audience to know that the typical fan is content with this new news. Because all men are pleased about this change, one can interpret that the shared response is one that can be found in all college football fans. The grave indicates the death in the BCS system, which seems to be a positive modification to the current system in play. We know that this is a new change based on the fact that the grave seems to have been recently been dug. The rising sun in the background symbolizes a new, progressive life. There is not a cloud in the background, symbolizing a bright future in this newly established scheme for the NCAA football postseason. To go along with that, because the trees are symmetric on both sides of the drawing, one can interpret that there is a balance in this new change.
Overall based on this image that Drew illustrated, the audience can interpret that he agreed with this change and believes that there will be a bright, balanced future in NCAA division one football.
