I thought it was really cool to use the fortune cookies for inspiration and they were really yummy. I read through all my fortunes and picked my favorite to use for the project. The fortune contrasted beauty and wisdom so I tried to do that in my drawing. I wanted it to show the difference between the worlds image of a beautiful girl and a smart one. It seems a lot of people think pretty girls aren't smart and smart girls always look nerdy, but a lot of times that isn't the case.

At first I didn't really like the idea of having to pass my art away and I didn't really know what to do with it. My first piece was pretty bad. I didn't have a lot on there and it didn't really go together. My second one was better but it still didn't fit. When I got my last piece I freaked because it had no theme and a bunch of random pictures, but I really started to get into it. I found a theme to work with and I started using paints. I actually had a lot of fun with it. I probably wouldn't have done the things the other people that worked on it did, but I'm happy with the way it turned out.
I was pretty excited when my art teacher said we were going to make our own stamps. I've always wanted to do something like because it seemed so fun and it was. Drawing the design was pretty easy but the carving was hard at first. Once I got the hang of it I finished pretty quickly. I loved mixing all the different colors to make cool patterns. It was annoying having to wash everything after each stamp though. I choose to do the video game title zelda because I really like it and it's pretty popular. I think printing in mass production can be really cool. If you really like a design you can test it in different colors and mix it with other designs without having to redraw it every time.
