Unpopular Opinion: Kanye isn’t a good designer

            Okay, so yes, I’m not even twenty yet and I’m judging a successful business man and musician. But the internet is for sharing all of your menial opinions so that you feel important, and the clutch of death and mortality feels less imminent.

What is art's purpose?

Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring

Art is, whether you like it or not, an imperative part of human life. Yet scholars, historians, and other great thinkers are constantly trying to define why we create art. I’d like to tackle that in the most basic of ways (for I am no great scholar nor am I a particularly gifted thinker), and discuss why we create art and is purposes.

Croqui Collection: Plato's Symposium

Yeah, you heard it: a collection based on something written by an old, dead, bearded Greek philosopher.

Croqui Collection: Star Wars Villains

I really like Star Wars, okay? And I really loved Force Awakens, especially the Villains. Yeah, you heard it: the villains have a great aesthetic.

Virtue and Wealth: The Roles of Women & Their Clothes in the Renaissance

Duchamp's L.H.O.O.Q. knows more than you. 

Alright, listen up. The Renaissance was great. Da Vinci, tons of new inventions, art, music, treatises! And, although women's clothing was great too, their positions in society weren't so great. At all. But, hey, jewels, amirite?

Croqui Collection #1

Sometimes I do fashion drawings. 

     This marks my first collection! I took inspiration from prosperity- the hatching of insects (butterflies, dragonflies), flowers, buildings, skyscrapers, sexuality. I incorporated lots of bright colors and patterns into this croqui collection, as I thought bright colors were common when associated with prosperity and happiness. However, I've also chosen to include some black and white pieces/accents, as I believe prosperity does not always benefit everyone. We tend to think of prosperity as mostly good, and while it is all of those things, those good things are not all parts of it. The black and whites, clearly opposites, strive to demonstrate that prosperity benefits some, but others are left behind in the wake of that prosperity.
