My first art teacher was an older white man and he taught me how to shade. I remember learning how to draw ribbon type curves and shading them to look three-dimensional. I started to see my art skills evolving and I knew I needed to do something. In the Ebony and Jet magazines they would have “Draw Me” ads, which read, “Over $8,000 in Prizes, monthly prizes, Draw Your Favorite!” On the ad were several characters some were: a pirate, “Tippy” the frog, “Lucky” the duck, and many more. They had two options send your drawing in and get prize money or enter the classes through the mail (pre-online art classes).

Magee felt that for him to pretend he felt happy and to just paint these ruins was not being true to himself or his art work. He wanted to paint the political side he was feeling and the disgust that went with those feelings (Alan Magee 1981-1991 pg. 9-10). One of Alan 's personal favorite series was " windowpanes of stone, doors without handles." He made this from his journey to France and Italy; his first show out side of the U.S. was held in France.
Now, Edward seems like the bad guy but in reality Edward is nowhere near being a bad guy. The town people are judging Edward based on how he looks. Another example is in the “Corpse bride”, when Victor confess to Emily he would never marry her and it was a mistake. In the scene, the music is doubtful and sad.

One example of one person not being able to combat Jim Crow due to the social pressure was in the book To Kill A Mockingbird.

He knew that there was pressure against it, so he took the cowardly way out by pretending to be drunk as an excuse to hang out with them. The fictional character of Mr. Raymond is a great embodiment of the mental state of the silent few in America that knew that Jim Crow was wrong, but didn’t have the means or willpower to end it.
Valencia portrays the average housewife and the general unhappiness of married couples. Edgar Derby shows how wars bring out the worst in people, and Bertram Rumfoord is symbolic of the apatheticness of officials who hold power. They are indifferent to how the consequences of their actions affect helpless citizens, and do not view the masses as ‘human’. Vonnegut’s intent in adding these symbolic roles is to deepen the meaning of the novel and to further carry the message of the theme to the reader. Valencia, who epitomizes the average housewife, also represents the unexpressed discontentment of many married couples.

While he was studying in the University, his professors continued to teach him styles of Revolutionary Realism such as the Soviet Union realist art, which converted him to the modern arts of the western countries.
While he does have his own quarters, he feels shunned because of his color. Many people at this time period thought that blacks were dirty and lower than caucasians. Crooks has gotten used to this way of life, and so he isn’t used to having anyone who treats him as an equal. Having his own place is nice for Crooks; however, he would like nothing more than to get to live in the barracks with the other men and fit in. Sadly, as Crooks says himself to Lennie, “You go on get outta my room.
