This was my final project in drawing class it was sopposed to be a collage- however everything had to be drawn, painted, cut-out or a hand made stencil by you. 

So my original idea was to create something that represented our impact on the environment...but it kinda morphed into it's own entity.  The bottom stenciled area is supposed to be a meadow with a large tree that I made out of recycle paper.  The area with the jelly fish is underwater.  I don't know how visable it is in the picture, but the curvy cut out is textured with netting.  I soaked the paper and then put the paper and the netting between two pieces of plywood and ran it over with my car.  The "bubbles" in the ocean were made using wax as a resistance and then running the ink over the background.  Finally the top or sky area is an ode to VanGough with the circles representing stars.  Some stars are covered by tracing paper to represent air pollution. 

Comments welcome ;o)
