Artist Statement Football On The Moon
I did this because it is what I love. Since I love sports and sports I one of my favorite passion. I chose sports. I chose different mediums because I wanted some parts to stand out so people would not look at it like it’s all the same. I wanted it to be exiting. Every time I messed up, I thought “OMG” and then I was like “wow this actually look good” so I started to work around it and in due time, my mistake became part of my art. I got my idea from my passion and a few friends. My friends just gave the idea and I had to add more stuff on to it like the moon. In my mind I was like “what I am I going to do? Where is my focal point going to be?” I decided to make it me, jumping in the air halfway to catching the football. Then I decided what going to be around me, I put my friends in next to me. My friends gave me the moon idea and I tried adding on to it. During this project, I was feeling awesome when I was on a roll, hardly got frustrated; I loved this project, thinking how I am going do it and how I could make it better. The thing I was scared about was the time. Time was right around the corner. I kept on thinking, don’t procrastinate. But this is how I got done with my project. It was hard work in the beginning but it all paid out in the end. I had some hard time and some good times but never got frustrated. This is why I made this Art. I took some extra time and next thing I know, I was playing Football On The Moon.
