Bucket List Item No. 1
colored pencil, oil pastel
11″ x 14″
“I am currently a senior in high school. I wish to pursue a degree in Illustration, but I am also interested in graphic design, as well as film. I work in a variety of media, and I love to experiment and learn.
This piece is part of my AP Art Concentration, the theme of which is ‘things I want to do before I die.’ This concentration is an illustrated bucket list, also acting as a testament to myself that I shall no longer hesitate to do what I want to do. Often including myself as the subject within my pieces, my works are almost like a diary, where each piece acts as a confession.
The idea behind this particular piece is somewhat comical and childish; the simple wish to have all of my favorite foods to myself. I wanted to take a playful and colorful approach, which would contrast with the rather grim theme of death.”
