I added a few more rings to my rug for theartassignment. Merriweather generously offered her services in providing a sense of scale.

Looking good, Meg! This reminds me that the biggest winners of Art Assignment 10 are pets.

I responded to the Art Assignment #11, “Under the Influence,” and ended up also making a mug for jayhens.

Influenced by a friend. Love this one. It makes me want to go back to camp and make funny, sincere mugs for friends all day.

Submission for the latest theartassignment: Under the Influence
[Box text: They want us to keep fighting! As long as we keep fighting, we can’t see what’s happening to us. We can’t see them!]
I adore Max Ernst. Ernst was a German artist born around the end of the 19th century. He worked in paint, sculpture, graphic arts, and poetry and was a pioneer in both the Dada and Surrealist movements. His reflections on the nature of art speak to me on a deeply personal level, especially when he says things like: “Creativity is that marvelous capacity to grasp mutually distinct realities and draw a spark from their juxtaposition.” That’s kind of just how I live my life.
I created this using plain white sketchbook paper, silver and black Sharpies, and pieces of art from comic books I had lying around and needed to get rid of. (She-Hulk #1, X-Treme X-Men #2, Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson’s A Tale of Sand, Nosh and Barry and Eddie and Joe, & JLA #91) I put it up twice so that I could show the colors from the art, but also represent it in black and white as most of Ernst’s collage is reproduced. 
This is my first attempt at artistic collage and it was a lot of fun. I don’t know that I’ll ever be amazing at it, but I am definitely going to try something like this again. I’m incredibly happy to have The Art Assignment to spur me on to attempt things I wouldn’t otherwise. Thanks, team! 

charmingpplincardigans does it again! This is wonderful. Thanks.

ART ASSIGNMENT #11. in the style of Barbara Kruger’s famous “your gaze hits the side of my face”, i created a similar image except with a more crude connotation. the original, which brilliantly points out the sexism of not listening to women but instead looking at them, focuses on the face, while this one brings to life the more common phrase, “my eyes are up here”. i have personally dealt with harassment and this pretty much says it all
