Artist: Andrea M
Title: “Infinite Cities”
CSULB School of Art
Like myself, Andrea is from Downey, CA. She plans to graduate in the fall of 2017 with a major in illustration bfa. She was originally going to major in business, unfortunately; she got kicked out of the major. She found art to be her best interest. She has four years of experience painting.
The portrait seems very simple in color, but it has a lot of detail in the way it was drawn. The colors in the illustration are mostly black, bright green, and blue. The boy drawn is wearing orange glasses, and black suspenders. There is shadow cast on his left side as well. The boy has an overall blue tone to his skin, and clothes. The shadow creates two shades of blue.
The drawing created by Andrea is of a character from her comic book. She has a story line developed with other characters. Even though she would love for it to be published, that is not her main focus. She is open to whatever happens in the future. She simply loves creating her comic, and drawing.
I was drawn to Andreas art piece because of the mystery. When I first saw the image, I had not known they boy was from a comic she was making, yet; I knew there had to be a story behind it. I also like the choice of colors she picked. The black background makes the blue boy stand out.
