Misconceptions by bananalicious Misconceptions by bananalicious
workshop 2, yesh i was crazy enough to draw on a wall with pencil, took me nearly the whole of my holidays to do this one, what i based the text on was my child experienced racial comments, and the eyes were a self portrait... this work currently measures at least 2.5x4.8 Metres.. roughly..

--Edit---

[link] <--photo of me and friend Rachel (~yellowcherry) standing at the wall! gives u an idea of the size.

i have recieved alot of comments asking how i ended it the rest of the story is here [link]

anywayz.. :strong: Please full view

Following is my artist statement:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Misconceptions.


“To be successful you must know how to use people, this is how businessmen are able to gain. If only I was educated” - Dad.

People are objects. According to my parents life is hard for those who are uneducated, they are those who live in unfortunate countries and suffer laborious conditions to only be paid little a day. I am fortunate to have the choice and live a system where education is available, but sadly most people do not value this opportunity. With Misconceptions I acknowledge the use of cheap mediums and the amount of labour evident within the work, and through this I hope to have created an appreciation towards products labelled “Made in China”.

Misconceptions by ~bananalicious has a message, but it is also technically an ambitious and physically demanding work to realize, and that deserves some press. ( Suggested by Drugstore-Ink and Featured by zeruch )

Well I can't even begin to fathom how you worked out where to shade the words properly so that it ended up looking like your eyes from far away. Somewhat easy to do digitally but pretty difficult using such a practical method I would imagine. Well done.

well actually it was a translation of something digital, so it was already preplanned on how i was gonna do it. although actually putting on the wall was definitely the hardest part. thank lord for digital really.. else it would have been total Hell XD

Did you draw it all and then erased it to get the face?
Or you immediatly went brighter on the face?

how many pencils did you use
Reply
:iconbananalicious:
bananalicious Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2009  Professional General Artist
Wow. Been to long, but I believe it was around 2-3 pencils.. it wasn't any ordinary kind. I used those whole graphite ones where you could peel off the skin. Very economical when it comes to projects like these, working on the light areas were much easier, those just required brushing of the lead left over XD

What a beautiful art!
Mainly because it is inspired in your own story!
I was touched because I suffered racism against asians too.
Good job! great eyes!

hey man. thanks a lot for your comment. I know its terribly tough when people just seem so narrow-minded when it comes to race. But oddly i found that going through that has fed my character one way or another.

haha thanks man.. lol yeah well I'm glad a lot of racist comments have since died down, due to most offenders being children I understand. But it still is saddening to come across some nasty comments now and then, especially from adults as well. But I believe racist thinking is just as immature.

But yeah, thank you very much for your comment :D
