School: Peak to Peak Charter

Statement:  This piece was created as a representation of the world right now. Our hearts break due to the number of how many we’ve lost to this virus.And in general? I think we’re all lost. The glitch effect I added was to express the pit of technology that I think that the moment we’re just all roaming around in. It’s interesting to be experiencing a situation where after all this, we have no idea how we’re going to fix everything. There are strings of help that we don’t have pulling us down. How this has impacted all of us is absolutely - there are just no words to describe it. It’s still cool how this whole collaborative project might bring a pool of artists together - even if we’re apart. 💖 How I made my heart: I sketched out the man's face, went over top with ink pen, then slightly to the left, I drew it again with red gel pen to make it pop. Slightly to the right, I drew it again with light blue ballpoint pen. After that, I wrote the phrase, "We're All Lost" in this kind of loose lettering. The word "help" is written over, mostly at the bottom, but some at the top and the side.
