Young Artist Alcove:
Marissa Hernandez

October 27 - December 4, 2016

Young Artist statement:
"I enjoy drawing still-lifes and original characters.  I get my ideas for my characters from my feelings, pictures I’ve seen, old cartoons and music.  Then I combine them together to create my own silly characters.  I use graphite and marker/pen to create my characters because it helps me to create clean edges.  When I work on a still-life, I enjoy trying to copy the textures.  I hope to use my characters and textures to create digital art like animation or video game design."
Through December 4, 2016
