Hays Free Press November 2, 2011 NEIGHBORS Page 3C + + Check it Out: Snowy Days at local libraries Continued from pg. 1C Unable to attend art school even though he received three scholarships, Ezra worked to help support his family and took art classes when he could. Among the jobs he held were mural painter with the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and comic book illustrator, illustrating!backgrounds for the Captain Marvel comic ~trip. After World War II, in 1947, he legally changed his name to Ezra Jack Keats, in reaction to the anti- Semitism of the time. It was his own experi- ences of discrimination that deepened his sympathy and understanding for those who suffered similar hardships. In 1949, Mr. Keats spent a season studying art in Paris and after he returned to NewYork, his illustrations be- gan appearing in numerous magazines and exhibitions between 1950 and 1954. One of his illustrations for a novel was on display in a Fifth Avenue bookstore, where it was spotted by the editorial director of Crowell Publishing. She asked him to work on children's books for her company, and published his first picture book in 1954. In an unpublished autobiography, Keats mar- veled: "I didn't even ask to get into children's books." In the years that followed, Keats was hired to illustrate many children's books written by other authors. Keats used his special artistic techniques to portray his subjects in a unique manner. One of these techniques was his blending of gouache with collage. Gouache is an opaque watercolor mixed with a gum that produces an off-like glaze. Ezra Jack Keats uses won- derful collages in illustrating his stories for children. The imagery used is reminiscent of experiences we all share in childhood. The characters in Keats's books come from the community around him. Ayoung boy named Peter appears as the main character in six of Keats' stories. Keats developed the "Peter" character from a photograph in a magazine because he was impressed by the expressions of the child in the photograph. Many of his stories portray family life, the simple pleasures of childhood and more complex issues that children encounter every day. Keats drew upon his own child- hood experiences, from bullying to being teased by his friends for liking girls; themes that children experience worldwide. The characters in Keats's books are drawn from the community around him and it is this universal commonality that supports the continuing popularity of Keats's books and characters. By the time of his death following a heart attack in 1983, Keats had illustrated over 85 books for children, and written and illus- trated 24 children's classics.
