School: Palmer High School
My slab box creation had a beginning of a few ideas. My choices were an Eragon based box, Alice in Wonderland based box, A kitten box, a Japanese mythical creature box, two Halloween inspired boxes, a baking themed box, a sewing themed box, a Kesride based box, and A Mayan mythical creatures box. I, after hard decisions, named my top three: The Eragon themed, the sewing themed, and the Mayan themed boxes. From there I asked the class which one the liked best and the outcome was the Mayan themed box. The handle is a Huay Chivo (a goat man) and the others are just Mayan based symbols. My choice of colors for the box was based off of my classmates remarks that it looked demonic, so I played along.
I really enjoyed the fact that I was able to express one of my many sides, the darker and creepy side. Along with the fact that my classmates saw that I could created something that could send chills down a person’s spine(and look demonic), didn’t really change how they viewed me.
That there is my process to creating my art piece dubbed as “The Goat Man.”
