I usually work with pencil because I don't know how to draw with anything else but pen, and pencil can actually be erased. This project in particular is influenced by the monster design, but not tone, theme, etc. of works by H.P. Lovecraft and other things inspired by them like the video game Bloodborne. Big, tentacled monsters with lots of eyes and mouths and whatnot. I'm not really satisfied with the left half because I had a deadline for it and wasted hours trying to think of something I actually wanted to draw on that side. So, I’m not 100% satisfied with it, but it works for the time limit I had. The right half has a section of a tower that looks like castles I drew in elementary school The striped mouth monster reminds me of a monster I drew as a little kid, and is similar to Tim Burton’s style, but it isn't directly inspired by it. The whole shape of the silhouette is a goat skull because it was symmetrical and I thought it looked cool.

Immigration is the movement of people into a destination country to which they are not native or do not possess its citizenship in order to settle or reside there, especially as permanent residents or naturalized citizens, or to take-up employment as a migrant worker or temporarily as a foreign worker. If one may not know the exact definition to the word immigration this is what it means. This project that I chose to do was made in order to show the struggles of the immigrants of our neighboring countries, along with many others. This has been a controversial topic since the recent events in Paris, France; and in San Bernardino, California. As one should know, immigration is a tight topic and many believe they should have every right in our country while other believe they shouldn’t as they could only be in our country to cause harm. I chose to do this on immigration because I wanted to show that, yes we should let immigrants in but we should have rules, and background checks. The people have a right in our country, if they are going to follow our rules and that is what I believe. I believe that this should be put in a place where many can see, so they understand the issue that our country is facing today. This is a topic that can hurt others, but it should show them that I am only trying to show them my beliefs. I think that this can show the people in our community that children are involved with the news and current events, that they also want to help. This should be shown to those who understand the trending issue, and those who don’t as it could give those people more knowledge. The one thing that people should learn from this is we should help those in need, even if they may hurt us later.

For the altered book project, I chose to use a book that greatly affected my childhood: The Hobbit. I read the work in fifth grade and fell in love with the mythical escape that the work provided. It developed my taste for the Lord of the Rings books as well. The large hole in the cover of the book is meant to represent a kind of portal that I would use to enter the world that the book illustrated. The box in the side signifies the memories I have stored from enjoying this work. The indignation comes from growing up, and more specifically, losing the childlike wonder of reading such a fantastic book. The sense of adventure provided by The Hobbit is still active to me, but nowhere near as strong.
