I created this work because I saw my peers do it and it looked cool too me. I was hoping to make a cool basketball design. I feel like it communicates my passion for the sport through art. I achieved a new way to create art in a new way so of I want to show someone else hot too create what I did I can show them with ease. My current work relates to my previous because they both relate to basketball. In this work I drew a ball and a crown. Then my last work I drew Stephen Curry’s sneaker. My art work can compare to graphic designers that do basketball art.
I made my art by finding ouy the design that I wanted to make. Next I traced my design on a piece of paper. Then I got blue paper and the pad that you cut on. After that I put the white paper over the blue paper then I put the blue paper over the pad. Then I re traced the design on the pad with the blue paper. Then after that I began to cut out the design that I drew but heating up the pad with the iron. My work reflects my life as a basketball player. It can inspire more people too make basketball art. Of you don’t do a specific part of the tenique right you wil mess up the complete design. I learned how too carve designs into a pad. In conclusion I learned how to show my apssion using a new form of art
I decided to choose this project because I already knew what I wanted to draw beforehand. I was going to make a drawing of the Curry Ones. I communicates that I like Stephen Curry and his sneakers. I achieved learning to make drawing more realistic. I learned how to make and give the sneaker texture to make it more realistic. My current work doesn’t relate too my past work because I didn’t draw an image I just painted. I think an artist that my work related too is Claire Tabouret. She is detailed in her work and I feel like I am to. First I looked for the image that I wanted. After that I started to create the image by tracing the body then I filled in the details by myself. My only inspiration for this drawing is basketball. This image reflects my life and my world because basketball is both of those for me. The art work could inspire people too make drawings like mines. I don’t really have a teqnique I just trace the bodies then fill in the details. In conclusion what inspired me too make this image is my love for basketball. I made this image after my favorite basketball player and his sneakers. My method was too trace the body and fill in the details and it worked for me.
For my electric art sculpture I made a light up basketball rim. Basketball is a big part of my life. I’ve been playing basketball for the past 10 years. So when I saw that this project was about lighting up something important in your life this immediately came to my mind.
For me I only want to be online if I’m being recruited or doing something. But I’m only online due to my Instagram account. But other than that I’m not online. But if people were to see me online or on my Instagram they would see that I love basketball and I am intelligent and know what I want to have in my life. But enough about me this is a guide for you and how to survive in the social media world.
Pros and Cons of sharing online
You can share fun information to your friends
You can let anyone know how you're feeling
You can get advice/help
You can save lives if you need to
You can raise awareness
Anyone can find you
People can hack into your account
People can stalk you
You can lose vital information
You can lose your job if you post something inappropriate
How this can happenen
You have no control of where your post goes. People can screenshot and share your post to who ever they want. Your employer can find out your account and see what you're up to. Also a big thing now is memes. Someone can meme you're post and it can go viral. Like Kyra Pringle. She was a little two year old that had a genetic disorder. So her mom posted a birthday picture online not knowing that it was going to be photoshopped memed and made fun of. So be careful with your posts. People who do this are called internet trolls. Internet trolls are people who start arguments when the post upsetting things just to get attention from people. You can easily stop internet trolling by not responding. Their goal is to get a response. So don’t pay them any mind.
Another thing is not everyone wants to know every aspect of your life. Like “ I just finished going to the bathroom. Now I’m going to pick up my kids.” Also another big thing is that if you comment or post something rude, disrespectful, or racist you're employer can fire you for that. Or they may not even hire you if you didn’t get the job yet. You might think that's crazy but they have the right to do it. Would you want someone that is racist and discriminates minorities to be a police officer. I didn’t think so. So I think it’s a good thing that jobs do social media background checks.
So in conclusion these are my three tips to not get into trouble online:
Don’t respond to internet trolls
Don't post or like inappropriate content online
Don’t post every little aspect of your life
