Personally, I eventually grew to hate this project. The constant tracing, the actual printing with the brayers and the inks were the worst parts. In the beginning I loved the drawing aspect of it and the carving into the linoleum because that was fun. We all got to sit there together at our table and even though it was one of the scarier more permament tasks, it was still fun to carve. In the end, I like how it turned out, the different colors and backgrounds. I suppose if it had been easy it would have been the simple way and wouldn't look as complex or artistic as it does. This was the one I grew the most from simply because of how I could further my skills in drawing, printing, carving. The project fell under so many different categories, and brought together many different art styles (Sculpting, drawing, etc.). I believe this really helped me to understand value, texture and colorschemes. I began to respect the importance of those things in art, the little things that make all the difference.
What's up doc? I love Bugs Bunny, I love Looney Tunes! Daffy and Porky Pig are sometimes annoying... But are classics. I loved Bugs Bunny's clever and witty getaways I loved everything about it. But, mostly I loved waking up in the morning and watching cartoons like Popeye and Tom and Jerry. These are some of my most cherished memories when we would watch cartoons down at the lakehouse of a close family friend. Then we would all go outside and play crochet. This cutsie, proportionally exaggerated drawing reflects me as an artist. I don't draw a lot like this, I probably should. This definitely shows off my personality and my style. It's one that I really connect with and I am glad it could be one of my first drawings when I started Art 1 and the last ones I write about finishing Art 1.
