The statistic on the piece is a quote from the article (by The Independent newspaper)- "4 million tonnes of surplus food is wasted every year in the UK." But the article also talked about a man who called a radio station, basically crying because of the way he was living. It was so sad. This is the article: www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/…
We waste so much, whilst there are people who cannot afford to eat. It's disgusting.
More drawings to come! :3
19, undergraduate in BA English.|
Studied Fine Art until A2 level in the United Kingdom (Year 13)
I guess you could say that my style is a kind of hybrid between manga and traditional fine art.
I think it's because I started out doing art because of my interest in manga, which led me to study art at GCSE and A level. But because manga isn't fine art (because it's stylised) I also learnt fine art and the two sort of underwent one of those horrible science accidents that you might find in a superhero comic and thus my style was born.
I like mixing up media, because I feel like I can't work in one if I'm honest But I mainly use colouring pencils, india ink, promarkers, biro and occasionally watercolours. I can take photos but my camera is literally only 16 megapixels haha. I aspire to work with digital media one day, but I've been saying that since I was 15 and I put it off every year
My favourite artists would probably be Banksy, Wenqing Yan (Yuumei), Minori, Van Gogh, Hong Yi (Red), Anthony Micallef and if we extend this to manga, Tite Kubo and Masashi Kishimoto.
When I remember what actually goes in this section, I'll write something else.
