FAFSA failures frustrate future freshmen

Artist Statement: This artwork is a representation of the event called Mr. Millard South transitioning to The Ultimate Patriot, which is nonexclusive and can have girls now. I used colored pencils and black marker to create this piece. I choose the different fonts because I wanted to use a more bold straight font for the Mr. Millard south because its more of a stern font, while on the girls side its more light and free, just to show its becoming something new.  I learned that since I scan my artwork, yellow colored pencil is not the best for a background since it  looks patchy. If I added more I would add more people in the background, and change the colored pencil to marker.

I was asked to draw a snowflake of any kind, I had no idea what one to do, so I drew 6 of them and let the writer have options. I wanted to make the snowflake simple and plain so I just used a blue marker and went straight into it. I took many tries, and if I learned anything it would be to take tie with a pencil first.

Artist Statement: My art work is a whimsical scene youve seen in almost a million fairytales. It represents the story of how the first valentine was sent (said in my story). This is a digital piece I created. I used a variety of brushes to convey paint. My goal was to make it look like an old painting so my colors are dull and less-saturated, and I tried to convey texture and a burnt corner. I hope this helps to improve my art for future fun and for people to enjoy it.

Artist Statement: My first outing into making art for the newspaper, created with digital illustration tools in Photoshop. As I listened to the album more and read what other people had to say about Emersons artistry, I realized more and more that The Golden Crystal Kingdom was inextricably tied to Texas, and I wanted to create something that reflected that.

Artist Statement: Drawing this photo was fairly easy. I needed to look at a reference photo for what an IV bag actually looked like and I just went off of that and added red blood cells to signify the blood in the blood supply.

Artist Statement: Outlined with a ballpoint pen, I drew a phone (using my own as a reference) showing the applications that are used by the majority of people. The idea was given to me from Jocelyn after conducting a data chart demonstrating the percentage of people using specific apps.

Artist Statement: Outlined with a fine tip pen, I chose to draw a radio that I had always seen growing up. I knew I wanted to involve Nelsons face into the art and decided to draw him and the instruments he was known for playing in his music into the screen of the radio. I wanted to show just how his music reached his listeners.
