There are many different components to this drawing, which I drew. To begin with, I wanted to relate to the book. I did that by adding two different details, that could've been left out, but I choose to keep them there. One of the details, is the mouse that was drawn as the same style of how the mice are drawn in the comic book. Another thing that I did based on the style of the book, is the letter "M" at the end of the word "Freedom". It is in the same font as the font which the title of the book is written in, at the cover.
The next thing that links this drawing to the book, is the concept that they mice(Jews) don't have any freedom what so ever at that type of time. Currently in the book, lucky for Vladek and Anja, who's freedom was starting to bloom. They aren't at any camp anymore, but there was just one problem, there is no way for them to get out from Nazi territories. This explains why there is a lock around the word freedom. Also, I didn't draw the key on purpose because it is no where to be found, in other words, the freedom for the Jews that are left won't be easy to have. Finally, I drew the mouse as if it were dead because there have been so many deaths up to this part in the book. For example, most of Vladek's and Anja's family are dead, also, many of their friends are dead or dying. To conclude, this drawing sums up what is currently happening in the book.
