This is my first project. This project was a dedication to my step brother, who passed away in 2011. The medium i used on this project was graphite. I had many obstacles in this project, because it was the first portrait i ever drew. I over came these obstacles with the help of my teacher, Mrs. Burwell. My first project took me about 3-4 weeks to complete. The Art 21 artist i chose, was Josiah McElheny . His art work was also about memory.
My role in the puppet collaboration project was to help recreate the scene for the "Greensboro 4". To recreate the scene, me and 3 others used tape to wrap our bodies with, to have a similar look of a human being. I also helped with the creation of Mantis. The trickster god is one the god puppets. My role was to help make the head of mantis, and to help paint mantis. Thanks to Donavan, making these puppets weren't as hard to make as they looked.
