Thank you to all of those who submitted work and we look forward to future responses in the next form!

“My submission, “Boba Girl” is a digital art piece, and is a character design based on people I saw in a tea shop downtown. I like it because it represents a lot of different styles and personalities that I come across in Portland cafes, all combined into one character!”

“This art piece is meaningful to me because it is the first piece I have ever done that has multiple art styles. In this case, it’s collaging and pencil drawing. Also for my piece, I wanted it to have some sort of hidden meaning to it, or something ironic that people may haven’t seen before. So, I intentionally only collaged the flowers on the girl’s head to show the contrast between what she really looks like versus what she wears to make her show what she wants to look like, like if society stereotypes want to make her pretty or something.”

“This artwork shows cherry blossoms in full bloom with a pair of colorful birds amid the beauty. Though there are many troubles in the world today, it’s comforting to know that the pure beauty in art has never changed.”

“This painting was done on a tablet using photoshop. My sister had just gotten her new dog, Yeti, 8 months before I made this, and he was sitting it this position on top of the stairs so I took a picture. While I was up in Sunriver enjoying some downtime on a vacation, I picked up my tablet, sat down and painted him. I really like this painting because it’s one of the best things I’ve made with my tablet, and it looks a lot like him. Whenever I get home he lights up my day and I knew he deserved a nice painting.”

“Well it all started one day when I was walking down the street. Then all of a sudden, I noticed some flowers. Then I took a photo of the flowers”
