Ben Fink-Second Artist Statement

On this quarter we worked on five different art projects, which I promptly put into the slideshow seen on the left. The first project was to memorize an image of a bicycle I saw and use it to draw the most realistic looking bike I could. The second assignment was to create two optical illusions, one a sort of a tunnel shape and the other a sphere with lines going all across the paper. The week after that, we had to draw 3-D geometric figures and shade them in so that they appeared to have shadowy parts. The penultimate week of art saw us taking pictures of our eyes and sketching them as realistically as possible. Finally, we had to draw to mandalas, one shown in an example posted to the assignment, and the other an original design.
