TED Talk: My How and Why

My “Why” Purpose:

In my opinion, no other medium can have the same level of impact on an individual than art can. Therefore, my purpose in studying digital media and animation is to inspire a feeling or thought in people. I want to create a work that can make people smile or make them cry. I want to stimulate emotions or provoke a person’s thoughts on different interests or topics.

My “How”:

To be able to have even a little influence on how people can feel or think, graduating my senior year of high school I had taken every art class offered at my school. Now I continue my next step toward touching people with what I create by attending college. After graduating, joining a field of work that requires my skill set will put me in the position to really be able to impact people with my work.

Emerson’s Self-Reliance Response

This essay by Emerson makes it very clear that he believes that individuals need to trust their own ideas, especially if they are different than what most people would judge to be “correct.” In fact, Emerson seems to encourage these types of behavior. One message he portrays is to follow what you believe is the right path, no matter how others around you think. If friends and family support your choices, you get to keep meaningful relationships. If they don’t, you should ignore their protests and continue pursuing your beliefs, even if it hurts the people you care about. Emerson is correct in encouraging nonconformity in my opinion. Without the nonconformists, the world would be a much different place today. Since this is the world we all live in, we should cheer on the nonconformists and not try to dissuade them from being what they are. After all, nonconformists are the people who will create the new ideas that will continue to lead us into the future.

Hinkle Gallery Creation Myth Response

Marduk Creates the World from the Spoils of Battle

The colors for this image stay within blues, greens, and orange. Varying shades for these colors are used in the image to demonstrate the chaotic background and to show what the character’s represent. However, there is not very much contrast with each of the colors. All of the objects in the image seem very smooth. The way in which the images are colored and drawn shows little texture. The way in which the drawings are placed in each panel feels very balanced. All throughout the page the location of the characters balances out from where they are placed related to each other between panels. The scale of each drawing in relation to the environment is nicely proportioned.
