So it was either write a really boring paper on the musical influences of Goethe or make a super fun visual representation of The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman for my final in Western Lit.  Surprisingly I chose the latter.  This is a 3-D mixed-media collage.  The face, which is a little hard to see, and the hand (sorry its kinda cartoony) are made of sculpey clay.  The "wallpaper" is a collage of victorian images I found in random ads and stuff online, they were colored with watercolors.  There's some scrapbook paper in there too.
Waaaayyy better than a paper!!

nice job!  I didn't even look at the title or your words at first, just the picture, and I immediately knew what it was about.  Smiley

Wow, I knew what it was from the title. I love your take on the short story, it's very cryptic but much more straightforward than the story. Great work Smiley

That is definitely better than a paper! I'm jealous, I never got those types of options.

Ooh I just read that story for a class and was hoping that when I saw the title,  it would be based on that story :]
Awesome representation of it! I love it Cheesy

When I saw this, I just had to look up the story and read it. Very creepy, and your work is such a good representation of it!
