To represent Of Mice and Men’s themes of dreams, loneliness, and sacrifice, Yang used an X-Acto knife to cut out shapes of a dark cloud, lightning, and a bird from black bristol, then glued them on the page to create the obvious composition. The dark cloud and the lightning stand for the obstacles of our dreams, and the bird is used to represent loneliness. Yang also used a No. 6H pencil and a black big brush to create the concept of pattern. The irregular lines staggered together makes it look like a broken mirror, represent the idea of sacrifice.
