Anticipation Series

A narrative tells a moment in an ongoing story. This illustration is a narrative moment in a baseball game where the batter is anticipating the pitch.
A symbol uses images familiar to the viewer to represent an idea. This illustration uses a roller coaster as a symbol. To anyone who has visited an amusement park, a roller coaster would be a familiar structure. Here it is being used to describe the moment the riders are at the very peak just before the anticipated drop.
A metaphor is the visual representation of something that suggests an association with something else in order to point out a similarity in something that may not otherwise be there. This illustration is a metaphor of anticipation where the emotion is being compared to the sport of fishing. "Anticipation is waiting for a fish to take bait."
