“Why don’t we spend less money on advertising and just make better airplanes?” – Bill Boeing 
When does my fifteen minutes of fame arrive?
“Sword and Body Study” by Josephine Tonn, 8×11.5″, marker on tan paper.
“Chapter 7”, Kennedy Lindeman, Pen on Paper. Demonstrating the duality of the workplace and art, shown with intertwining ribbons and the cross of pencil (professionalism) and paintbrush (art).;
“To me” Chapter 7. Isabella Arredondo. 2017. For me, I don’t play on having a career in fine arts or commercial arts but for me, I see myself making art strictly for my pleasure and enjoyment. I want to be able to hang my art work in my house some day.
“Untitled”, ink and graphite on paper, Aubrie Torhorst, 2017. In Chapter 7 the author mentioned separating his day job as far away as possible from his art to prevent his job from hurting his passion. This image is a made-up scene where a woman comes home from her day job and is reviewing papers while her artwork is pinned on her wall. She is not famous but the work is meaningful to her.
“Chapter 5” Sammy Mayer. Artists are free to make their own choices, but with that freedom comes the additional likelihood of failing. But when making art purely for pleasure, you can’t really fail. Of course it’s a plus if you sell the occasional painting.
“Art Everywhere”, Casey Fredrick, Pencil on Paper. This chapter was about advertising and how design and art are interconnected. So, I did a simple sign found around school I took a picture of. It’s just the room numbers, but someon had to design it and then get it approved.
