We March - Shane W. Evans The folk-art and painterly textures make these illustrations interesting to look at. Charcoal or pencil outlines show skill with drawing as well as painting. What order did Evans do these in? Did he pencil in the drawings, then color them, then draw over them? Or is the paint transparent--it looks too saturated to be transparent paint. Simple text keeps the text more about the illustrations and what is happening. There was one 'idealized' illustration that showed a Jewish man and a handicapped guy on the march, as if to say 'they marched for all of us'. Was that historically accurate? Given later problems black civil rights leaders had with statements about Jews and homosexuals, I'm not sure it's likely.
