Blue Collage

The collection that our art class brought in was an ocean of blue. With all these items that we're brought in we use and do in our daily lives. The blue vans shoe is something everyone wears to get through the day, maybe not that type of show but everyone has a shoes on their feet. To go deeper then just a shoe to get you from place to place and to keep your feet warm and unharmed a shoe is a way of life. "Walk in my shoes and understand what I've been through," is one of the famous phrases a lot of artist use in their songs. We walk on this planet to get through struggles, good items, and dreams and no one will ever understand what you've been through unless they walked in your shoes. There are many other items in this collage of blue that we use in life.
The artist Portia Munson does similar artwork like the collage our class has created with our personal home items. Portia's art work is the pink collage of multiple items that interest her. Unlike ours where students were unsure what to bring so we brought in simiple items, Portia used more thought out items that all have a meaning to her in some way.

Collecting VS Hoarding

Collecting Vs Hoarding could go in many ways. Some people may agrue they are the samesamething because both are an obession over a certain item or items. But, these are hos the definitions differ. Collecting is to bring together in a group or mass; gather; to accumulate as a hobby or for study. Hoarding is an excessive collection of items, along with the knability to discard them. My veiws on these two things are very similar. i look at these things as the same, these both are diseases of an obession but one is just stronger than the other. With collecting you may do it as a hobby but along in time you will end up getting obsessed with that hobby. With hoarding something either tragic happened or you were born with the disease to collect anything you gather in life. Hoarding is just an extreme version of collecting.

Compare & Contrast

With these two projects there was a big difference between them both. The bike drawing was a rather darker drawing considering we didnt use any colors. The bike drawing was also extremley hard for me to do considering on how much we have to do; shading and drawing such a big item to draw. The candy drawing was the easiest drawing for me draw we used lots of colors and i actually liked how my drawing turned out. These two drawings have such a big difference on the mind set i was in with each one of them and how the one was darker and other was ligther.
