Hello everybody, great news, I completed my Senior Art Show this past Tuesday. It went wonderfully. There were 4 students that were required to; myself, a dear friend of mine, and two ladies who worked with photography from my other classes. Everybody did pretty well, I was second in place. One weird thing that happened was the professors spent 7 minutes trying to figure out the name of an artist during one of the girl's presentations. It was out of place and silly and cut into her time, but at least she didn't have to defend her work too much haha.

As for me, they enjoyed my work. My project was called "The Beauty of Men", because I don't believe men are recognized as something that can be beautiful when it's an ambiguous term that has slowly become more feminine. When describing a beautiful guy people use apropos terms like handsome or Cute, which is fine, but beautiful is missing from those descriptions and I don't think that's right. And what I mean by Beauty is outward looking as well as inward personality. The beauty of a man who provides warmth, comfort, care, and love shown through their body and actions.

They said I was very skilled, but they questioned my message and fantasy depictions. I spent some time clarifying my artist's statement. It made much more sense to them after that clarification. Basically they were asking me why I said a blanket statement that men aren't recognized for their good deeds at all. That was not what I was trying to say, but when they forced me to shorten my artist's statement it came out sounding that way. What I really meant was that sometimes a man isn't recognized for being a good person, it's something easily glanced over, and I wanted to chine a light on that more.

The major criticism they had for my work was that I used fantasy to depict my message. They asked me that in all of the art world, all of the fantasy artists and stories and games, what makes mine stand out? And I told them that as I've studied fantasy art and narratives, not a lot of people touch on the subjects that I do. In fact I can barely name anyone and I look a lot. Not many artists talk about the kindness, sincerity, care, love, gentleness, calm, mentoring, guardianship, and comfort guys are capable of in ways different from women and beautiful in their own way. I told them I think my message stands out despite the way I depict it being ground that's being tread all the time. They agreed hehehe.

I won't know if I graduated or not till the reception at the end of the semester. The professors aren't allowed to say till then but they have been pretty positive towards me hahaha. My friend too. So I'm sure I passed, but I still won't know till then. Though it's still not the end for me yet, I have to pass this semester too, and because of the show I'm a bit behind.

I'll be posting some work from the show that I haven't yet soon. It's about 3-4 pieces, one needs editing.

I hope everyone's been doing well. I still have about 5 weeks left then I'm home free and can get back to work here fully.

Thank you all for all the support hehehe
