3. I feel the amount of effort I put into the 1st version was strong mostly in the blending of the colors.

4. My linework definitely wasn’t it’s best! I can’t believe I didn’t do it the first time around.

5. Landen suggested I clean up the lines and fill in the white spaces which is exactly what I needed to do, so — thank you so much!

6. I took my classmate’s advice and made sure to get rid of any white spots and line my piece neatly, it really made the piece pop.

7. My 2nd draft is 1000x better, it looks much cleaner. The suggestions I received from my classmates helped so much.

Janice Sung went to school graduated from Sheridan College with a bachelor’s degree in Animation. On her website, she mentions that she actually doesn’t like animating. Janice Sung struggled a lot to find her style as she believes that finding your style can be seen as a part of your identity. Janice is a freelancer, she first started in a small boutique studio in Toronto as a concept artist.

Janice likes to incorporate a ton of geometric shapes in her drawings, whether that be earpieces, clothing, or just the background. The texture is so unique too, scruffy almost. Janice sometimes does digital work and still adds a watercolor-finish type of texture. The color palette she usually uses is neutral, pastels. …

2. My original vision went exactly as planned!

3. “ “

4. I think my project was definitely a success! Everything went smoothly — better than I expected really.

5. I believe my project got stronger due to improvements as I was working on it. For example, the background colors looked boring solid so I decided to make it blend into a different color! It made it far more vibrant.

6. Really all I was trying to do was express was my love for MCU! I think I pretty much achieved my goal. I wanted to paint something Marvel-related for quite some time and this was perfect. …


Artists: Micol Hebron and Joseph DeLappe

Media: Video Art, Performance Art, New Media

Websites: http://micolhebron.artcodeinc.com/pages/art/ & http://www.delappe.net/

Intermedia artists Micol Hebron and Joseph DeLappe are both extremely talented. Michol Hebron studied at UCLA where she got a Bachelor’s in the Arts as well as a Masters in Fine Arts. Micol Hebron is also studying what is known as Video Art or Performance Art. Similarly, Joseph DeLappe works with the virtual world and is currently a professor of “Games and Tactical Media” at Abertay University which is located in Scotland. Both Hebron and DeLappe work with “New Media”.

I stumbled upon a bunch of Hebron’s feminist work, she is very passionate about this topic and it is made evident throughout her work. DeLappe’s work is unlike anything I’ve seen before, he made a self-portrait of himself, as a Monster Truck! Hebron’s work hints a lot at gender and gender norms. She creates images with computer software, or with what I assume is photoshop. One, for example, is a cropped image of a male nipple alongside a witty caption connoting to the “unacceptable” female nipple. DeLappe’s portrays himself as what seems like a silver monster truck. The light blue background behind the big silver monster truck brings the whole thing together. …

Attaining a sense of “place” will ultimately lead you to the answer to many questions. A “place” has the power to affect the lives of many. A “place” creates cultures, where people are able to express themselves and their ideas freely. A “place” is the root of values and has the capability to creates opportunities for many.

An artist who I look up to a lot goes by “AbrahamInk”, a tattoo artist. I have a whole other level of respect for tattoo artists..the HONOR of having a person walking around with something YOU created for the rest of THEIR lives is astonishing. This artist in particular has been the family tattoo artist for years. He loves what he does, he does it with passion. The passion he puts into his work is what people need. It’s so inspirational. Another person I find very inspiring is Frank Jimenez. He’s the CEO of arborwealthinc. He actually spoke at a career day in my 4th-grade class! He reached out to me recently and the message he puts forth is so inspiring. …

During the drive from Blizz back to the house, we listened to music while looking out the window, just enjoying the weekend

1. Lately I’ve been really into dragons and really wanted to bring my portrayal of a dragon to life.

2. I had initially thought that making a dragon out of physical items I found around the house would be awesome! But upon trying, I quickly discovered how challenging it would be. I then thought it would be cool to draw it digitally, but something about digital art doesn’t seem as raw (personally). I then tried painting, which felt more suitable for what I was shooting for with this project.

3. So, I decided with a media I’m more comfortable with for this project; paint, watercolor to be exact. …


Artist: Bobi Bosson

Media: Painting, sculpture, screen-printing, & murals.

Bobi Bosson originally went to school with the intention of pursuing animation, but eventually came to the conclusion that animation was not the path she wanted to take. Bosson is very detail-oriented — she loves the details of things, and, as she mentions, in animation you can’t really pay much attention to details. Movement is looked at more when doing animation. So, she went onto different media that definitely were more immersive in detail: painting, sculpting, murals, and screen-printing.

A piece that Bosson created that resonated with me deeply was her “JULES” oil painting. The colors used in the piece compliment each other so perfectly. The orange hues really bring out the blue, which is what I assumed to be the focal point of the painting. The woman painted in blue is so beautifully captured; The vivid blue-overlapping lines surrounding the blue woman all help bring attention to the center of the painting. I also really like that the “center” of the painting isn’t actually perfectly centered, the blue woman is placed more to the left, which I find very appealing. The warm tones don’t clash with the cooler tones, on the contrary, it really creates a unique rhythm. The texture looks like it could be rugged yet smooth. …
